The LeRoy Neiman Center brings the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) community together in unprecedented ways and extends our campus into the urban fabric of Chicago. The first floor includes a street-level space for the Student Union Galleries, a curated video wall, and a programming/event space to hold everything from a lecture to an informal gathering. The second floor lounge and café enables our students, faculty, alumni, and staff to eat, meet, relax, discuss, get involved, and be inspired. The lounge also acts as a programming space that can be used for programs and events ranging from open mic nights to film screenings and informal critiques. Our Campus Life and Student Government/Programming offices are also located on the second floor as well as a new Student Leadership Suite where SAIC’s student groups can hold activities and meetings.
