About Grayslake Campus

By far the largest College of Lake County site, the Grayslake Campus consists of 226.1 acres. About one-third of the campus is currently devoted to buildings and parking areas, and another 20 percent is allocated for future building. Natural beauty is a distinct feature of the campus, and about one-third of the acreage will be permanently preserved as natural areas.

Buildings on the campus have been gradually constructed over the years with careful planning to offer students a rich and stimulating academic experience. Most of the buildings are connected, but a few, such as the gymnasium (Building 7) and the Illinois Employment and Training Center, stand alone.

Among the major features of the campus:

A. Harold Anderson Campus Wing (A Wing), completed in 1974. This wing contains classrooms and faculty offices and currently houses the Social Science Division office (A 244, second floor). The A Wing also includes a court area for student use for study and socializing.
