Open House Chicago at UIC

Date / Time

October 13, 2018 - October 14, 2018

All Day

On October 13 and 14, Open House Chicago will provide access to 250 unique buildings throughout the Chicago area. The free event, sponsored by the Chicago Architecture Center, features 31 neighborhoods, from Bronzeville to Evanston and everything in between.

UIC has participated in the event since 2016, and will host three sites this year: the IDEA Commons, the UIC Police Station, and the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum. These locations have fascinating histories and architectural designs. The red-brick and limestone UIC Police Station was constructed in 1888 and serves as a model of an old-school Chicago police station. The IDEA Commons is a bright and thriving part of campus in the Daley Library. The Hull-House Museum was established to honor social reformer Jane Addams.

The Idea Commons will be open to the public on Saturday, October 13 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, while the UIC Police Station will be open to the public on Sunday, October 14 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum will be open to the public both days from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
