Student services

We find that our students choose Roosevelt University not just to unearth their career paths but also to transform their mind, develop a fresh perspective and reshape their world. Roosevelt’s distinctive focus on social change spans both campuses, cultivating growth among our community of individuals while encouraging ethical and economic progress among all citizens. Fortunately for our mission of educating socially conscious leaders, the extensive and diverse Chicago area truly remains a “city of neighborhoods,” whose residents are full of local pride and community spirit.

Campus life

Our historic Chicago Campus makes up a part of the “South Loop Educational Corridor,” one of the largest college campus areas in the United States. Situated in the heart of the commercial and cultural district of the nation’s third-largest city, it’s just a short walk from world-class museums, theatres, libraries, parks, restaurants, sightseeing attractions, sports venues and more.

Likewise, our state-of-the-art suburban Schaumburg Campus, situated among a rapidly growing area of economic development, offers an excellent, accessible option for those located outside of the city. Both campuses provide numerous opportunities for academic and personal growth, as well as community outreach and development.


All degree programs at Roosevelt are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
