Building Access
Beginning September 1, 2021, alums who would like to visit the SAIC campus must be signed in as a visitor by a student or SAIC employee. All visitors must be escorted by an SAIC employee or student host at all times, and will be required to wear a face covering at all times. Thank you for understanding.

A valid alumni ARTICard and visitor sign-in permits alum access to the Sharp Building (37 S. Wabash Ave.), Sullivan Center (36 S. Wabash Ave.), and Lakeview Building (116 S. Michigan Ave.). To access the 280 Building (280 S. Columbus Dr.) or MacLean Center (112 S. Michigan Ave.), notice of visits and permission from a staff or faculty member are required.
