Life in Champaign-Urbana

Champaign-Urbana, with its big-city amenities yet small-town accessibility, is a vibrant and affordable college town with a lively cultural scene, free public transit for students, a wide range of restaurants, and numerous sporting opportunities. Recognized as one of the best college towns in America, the Champaign-Urbana area abounds with possibilities, from attending performances at the acclaimed Krannert Center for the Performing Arts and watching Big Ten sporting events, to partaking in any number of other local events, such as the Illinois Marathon, the Ebertfest Film Festival, Urbana’s Market at the Square farmers market, or Friday Night Live music events in downtown Champaign. On and off campus, Champaign and Urbana are filled with parks, athletic facilities, green spaces, bicycle and walking paths, and other opportunities for both indoor and outdoor recreation.
