Please note that SAIC alums who are employees of the Art Institute of Chicago or SAIC are not permitted access to their saic.edu email accounts and digital files when their employment terminates.

Building Access
Alums may access SAIC buildings during normal hours but will be required to wear a mask at all times and will need to show proof of vaccination against Covid-19 ((two weeks beyond the completion of their one- or two-shot series). Some offices or departments may require an appointment so be sure to check with them before you visit campus. Review the Visitor Policy for the most up-to-date policies. 

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.
