Student Discounts

Welcome (or Welcome Back) to Student Life!

Because Spertus graduate programs serve adult students, we know that it may have been a while since some of you carried a student ID. It is our pleasure, therefore, to remind you that — in addition to getting you into the Spertus building — your student ID allows you to access discounts at a range of local and national businesses. Here are some of our favorites.

Loop U Chicago
Loop U Chicago is a free initiative of the Chicago Loop Alliance that connects the Loop's college population (more than 60,000 students who attend class at more than 20 local institutions of higher learning) to retail stores, restaurants, entertainment venues, and cultural institutions. Log in for discounts, job listings, and information about what's going on in downtown Chicago.
