Illinois Institute of Technology Top Questions

When you step off campus what do you see?


It depends in which direction you walk. Walking west brings you into Bridgeport, a developing neighborhood with small local businesses and restaurants as well as many residences. Bridgeport is home to Cellular Field. Many IIT students live in Bridgeport due to the low rent. Walking south is not recommended as it's not a great part of town. However, the police station is south so it is not entirely unsafe. There are many fast food restaurants south of campus. Walking west brings you to the Illinois College of Optometry, Bronzeville, and a large residential area. Walk a bit further and you will be at beautiful lake Michigan! Walking north brings you closer to downtown.
