Lewis University has entered into a new 11-year lease agreement and will relocate the Oak Brook Campus from its current location on York Road to 1111 W. 22nd Street in Oak Brook in time for Spring 2013 classes. Lewis University has offered educational programs in Oak Brook that meet the needs of working adults for 34 years.
Lewis University Oak Brook Campus plans to occupy the entire 7th floor at 1111 W. 22nd and the build out for the new space began in Fall 2012. Space will double from the existing 15,000 sq. ft. of classrooms, conference rooms, offices and a computer lab to 28,360 sq. ft. of classrooms, conference rooms, offices, computer labs and a specialized lab for the College of Nursing and Health Professions Adult and Family Nurse Practitioner programs.
The new facility offers a parking garage and is immediately accessible from major toll ways and 22nd Street in Oak Brook.
The University is excited to have this opportunity to expand its programs which currently include degrees in business, finance, education, nursing, organizational leadership, healthcare leadership, criminal/social justice and public safety administration.

Draudt, Executive Vice President for Lewis University. “We believe this new space will be an opportunity to create a state-of-the-art educational environment for our adult students.”
