Grow Together

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) has an active campus fueled by our student groups, organizations, and leadership opportunities. With more than 60 student groups and organizations and a full schedule of events, SAIC’s Campus Life office offers countless ways to get involved in the SAIC community. From school-wide events such as the International Culture Week to the Eye and Ear Clinic's film screenings, and from weekly belly dancing and yoga classes to philosophy discussions and art critiques, you can indulge in almost any interest.

Residence Life offers on-campus housing to enhance the student experience at SAIC. The residence halls are designed for working artists and are located steps from SAIC academic facilities. While living in the residence halls, you can enjoy opportunities for interaction among a dynamic community of fellow artists. Each facility offers 24-hour security, student resident advisors, and full-time live-in professional staff. Staff members are here to help you get to know SAIC and the city and to build a strong community of artists. Residence Life plans many programs throughout the year that include film screenings, gallery tours, trips throughout the city, and more.
