Welcome Fueled by vibrant energy of Chicago and the natural beauty of our campus, Dominican University is rated as one of the best values
in the Midwest. Every year
we welcome more than 100 international students from
23 countries to our campus.





Only 10 miles from downtown Chicago, Dominican’s beautiful campus is accessible to all of the internships, career opportunities, arts, museums, and an exciting nightlife scene the world-class city provides.


In our immediate area, the Oak Park-River Forest community is rich with cultural opportunities, including a symphony orchestra which uses the university as its home, numerous art galleries, and theaters.  Within walking distance of campus are restaurants, parks, museums, movie theaters, churches and retail districts. Public transportation and the free university shuttle conveniently connect the campus to downtown Oak Park and Chicago.
