Located in an attractive residential neighborhood on the southwest side of Aurora, the 37-acre main campus contains 29 instructional, administrative, and residence buildings. The distinctive, red-tiled roofs specified by Charles Eckhart in his donation for the original campus mark the major buildings (347 South Gladstone Avenue, Aurora, IL, 60506).
In addition to the main campus, Aurora University offers programs off campus for the convenience of students. The education program offers graduate degrees at school districts throughout northern Illinois. The George Williams College campus offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Additional individual classes and degree programs are offered at numerous other sites in northern Illinois, including the Woodstock Center in downtown Woodstock, Illinois (222 Church St., Woodstock, IL, 60098), and the Orchard Center near the interchange of I-88 and Orchard Road in Aurora (2245 Sequoia Dr., Aurora, IL, 60506).
