Facilities

Erikson’s campus was built specifically for our educational, research, and clinical activities. With nearly 75,000 square feet on three floors, the campus features high-tech classrooms and seminar spaces, teaming rooms and group study rooms, and space for research and programs that directly serve children and families. Watch our campus tour video

The building’s two-story dedicated lobby entrance and prominent street signage give Erikson striking visibility in Chicago’s vibrant River North neighborhood.
