Department Info


Where is Astronomy?

The Astronomy Department is in the Astronomy Building (Accessibility Info) on Green Street, the main road through the heart of campus. We're on the Urbana (east) side of campus, about two blocks east of the Illini Union. Metered parking is available along Gregory Street (on the eastern side of the Astronomy Building).

Astronomy Building

If you're looking for the Observatory (for observing sessions or a UIAS Open House), it's just southeast of the Quad, by the Undergraduate Library.


If you're coming here from out-of-town, please take a look at the University's Visitor's Guide.
