Illinois State’s tree-shaded campus covers 490 acres and provides a study of varying architecture with 140 major buildings, most of which are less than 40 years old and accessible to individuals with disabilities. Buildings range from the castle-like appearance of Cook Hall to the modernistic dominance of the 28-story Watterson Towers residence hall, the high-tech Science Laboratory Building and the College of Business Building.
