Graduate Portfolio Day

Be sure to attend one of our graduate admissions events (SAIC Days or Graduate Portfolio Days) or schedule a campus visit. Each will give you an opportunity to speak with one of our representatives about SAIC, our curriculum, your work, and what it's really like to be an SAIC graduate student.

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) invites you to visit our campus and tour our state-of-the-art graduate facilities and world-renowned museum.

We offer graduate campus tours most Mondays and Fridays leaving promptly at 1:30 p.m. We ask that you arrive a few minutes early and meet us at the LeRoy Neiman Center at 37 South Wabash Avenue, Chicago, IL 60603.

Reservations are requested. Make your graduate tour reservation.

Please note: due to building construction during part of SAIC's summer session, May 16–July 10, 2016, tours of certain areas and departments will be limited. Specific spaces for the departments of Painting & Drawing, Photography and Printmedia will not be able to be shown. General content about these areas will still communicated on tours but spaces will be unavailable. Please contact the Admissions office at 800.232.7242 or for questions regarding this.
