The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is thrilled to return to in-person Open House events this year, and to welcome our future students and their families to campus!
For more than 100 years, U of I has been hosting open houses each spring. Today, busloads of students come from across the state for the chance to experience a bit of campus life - and to be awed by our cutting edge science. Your hosts are current Illini students, all eager to share their projects and their Illinois experience.
Come and visit us during one (or more!) of these Open House opportunities. There's so much to see and do!

College of Law Virtual Open House
April 8 and 9, 2022
This is the event that started it all in 1920! Students from every discipline of engineering set up exhibits to remind the general public of the role that science plays in everyday life and to show the difference that technology will make in the future. Exhibits range from robotic hands, solar cars, and a coffee-serving robot, to an oobleck pool and DIY plastic. Events will include a fire demo from the Illini Fire Service Institute, a Tesla Coil concert, a Startup Showcase, prospective student panels, and much more!
Engineering Open House

Students will have the opportunity to meet some of their faculty, new classmates, and current Media students, and student organizations. Through a series of panels, workshops, and discussion activities, admitted freshmen will learn more about their curriculum, getting involved in student media, and what it means to be a Media student at Illinois. Mediapalooza is the BEST way to decide that Illinois is the place for you!
