Roosevelt University is nationally recognized for providing transformational experiences and opportunities for discovery that create socially conscious citizens who are leaders in their professions and their communities.

Reflecting the ideals of its founders in 1945, Roosevelt University is a private, nonsectarian community of educators, scholars, and learners committed to academic, creative, and service excellence who value differences in personal experiences and perspectives; ask the difficult questions; and promote mutual understanding, inclusion, social consciousness, and action toward social justice. Recognizing that difference broadens perspectives, Roosevelt University seeks and serves a diverse, promising student body from metropolitan Chicago and around the world.

Student life

Take it all in — the view of Lake Michigan from your dorm room, the bustle of our thriving student organizations, the green and white pride at athletic events, and the buzz of a booming suburban corridor at our Schaumburg Campus. It’s all here, and it’s all part of life as a Roosevelt Laker.
