The campus is well-known for its landscape and architecture, as well as distinctive landmarks. It was identified as one of 50 college or university 'works of art' by T.A. Gaines in his book "The Campus as a Work of Art."
The main research and academic facilities are divided almost exactly between the twin cities of Urbana and Champaign. The College of Agriculture, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences' research fields stretch south from Urbana and Champaign into Savoy and Champaign County. The university maintains formal gardens and a conference centre in nearby Monticello at Allerton Park.
UIUC is one of the few educational institutions which own an airport - Willard Airport, named for former University of Illinois president Arthur Cutts Willard, is located in Savoy. It was completed in year 1945 and began service in year 1954. Willard Airport is home to University research projects and the University's Institute of Aviation, along with flights from American Airlines.
The campus is based on the quadrangle design popular at many universities. Four main quads compose the centre of the university and are arranged from north to south. The Beckman Quadrangle and the John Bardeen Quadrangle occupy the centre of the Engineering Campus. Boneyard Creek flows through the John Bardeen Quadrangle, paralleling Green Street. The Beckman Quadrangle is primarily composed of research units and laboratories, and features a large solar calendar consisting of an obelisk and several copper fountains. The Main Quadrangle and South Quadrangle follow immediately after the John Bardeen Quad. The former makes up a large part of the Liberal Arts and Sciences portion of the campus, while the latter comprises many of the buildings of the College of ACES spread across the campus map.
Centrally located between three major US cities: Chicago, Indianapolis, and St. Louis.
