  • This is the center of the University of Illinois, the crown jewel, so to speak. Its character changes from season to season, and from term time to vacation. Come and enjoy it any time of the year.  more »
  • A perfect place to chill and read a book, especially in a good weather. A landmark of U of I that you should experience.
  • Great place to relax, walk your dog, usually always something going. Plenty of nice study spaces if you like studying outside.
  • Very clean, spacious, and calming. Many trees, perfect for hammocks, large group meetings and just taking a break.
  • Not much to review here, but this place is so vibrant! There is always something going on, especially during the summer/fall. They have the summer quad cinema series (every Thursday at 9 pm). Its a fun place to chill, eat, work, enjoy the weather and basically take a break from hectic work/studying schedule. This definitely is my favorite place (during the summer when its not too busy) at UIUC.
  • Great place to walk, lay out in the sun, play Frisbee, eat a meal. It's the center of the university so it's about 5 minutes from anything you need. There are still some large trees for shade.
