Robert Morris University has found a vibrant, viable and cosmopolitan base in its main location in Chicago’s Loop, in what has come to be called the Education Corridor of the city. Located at the intersection of State Street and Congress Parkway, across from the renowned Harold Washington Library, the Chicago Location is situated in a landmark building minutes away from all that Chicago offers. The cultural and educational opportunities of the Art Institute, Field Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago Board of Trade, Merchandise Mart, theater district, and countless other resources are a short walk or cab ride for our students.
In addition, the University has expanded with locations in other areas of Illinois, including Bensenville, DuPage, Lake County, Orland Park, Peoria, and Springfield. A new, convenient location in Schaumburg serves students in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago. Coming soon, RMU will also open a new campus in Arlington Heights.
