The Elmhurst campus combines the high-tech necessities of a modern education with the charm of a classic college campus. The 48-acre grounds are an arboretum, with more than 700 varieties of trees, shrubs and other woody plants; classic red-brick buildings boast wireless Internet access, "smart" classrooms and more.
The College has a long tradition of responsible stewardship of the environment. From low-impact lighting and permeable paving to a LEED-certified residence hall, Elmhurst incorporates green principles throughout campus life.
Elmhurst College is located near the geographic center of metropolitan Chicago, 16 miles west of the Loop. A short walk from downtown Elmhurst, the campus is easily accessible by car or Metra commuter train.
Residential living affords you the rare opportunity to help define your individuality, values and goals while developing memorable and meaningful relationships. Residential students reflect the many cultures of our society and are able to contribute to the community through personal sharing and involvement opportunities.
We value student engagement in the campus community as a cornerstone of a student's success in the first year of the collegiate experience. With this in mind, it is the policy of Elmhurst College that first-year residential students not have cars on campus.
First-year student applications will be considered for residence halls only. Transfer students will be considered for campus apartments and houses unless the transfer student has one-year or less of college experience, whereby she or he can request placement into residence halls should space allow.
First-year students will have a roommate. To request a specific roommate, you and your prospective roommate must mutually request each other at MyHousing through the College portal, MyElmhurst.edu. First-year students are only eligible to be roommates with other first-year students. First-year students will not be assigned a roommate who is a new transfer student or a continuing student.
