Located on famous Michigan Avenue, within the "South Loop Educational Corridor" of downtown Chicago, the International Study Center is less that a 10-minute walk from all University facilities.
The 12-story Gage Building that houses the International Study Center is right across the street from Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (known for the famous "Bean" sculpture) and 2 blocks away from historic State Street. Providing easy access to public transportation, the ISC is only a 2-minute walk from the elevated train system, popularly known as the "L".
Other departments sharing the Gage Building are the College of Education and Department of Communication. Students enrolled in the Pre-Master's pathway to MS Integrated Marketing Communications will have a chance to interact with their future classmates and professors!
