University of Notre Dame Chicago Commons - Santa Fe Building

224 South Michigan Avenue
Chicago, Illinois


A Chicago landmark became the home of the Chicago Executive MBA program in January 2007 when the program moved to the Santa Fe Building on South Michigan Avenue. With renovations completed in June 2008, the facility was named the Chicago Commons and now offers students large, tiered classrooms, around-the-clock access to team study rooms, wi-fi and more amenities. The building is owned by the University and also houses the Chicago alumni and development offices. The second-floor facility is accessible from a stunning marble staircase on the first floor.

Completed in 1904 and first named the Railway Exchange Building , the 17-story Santa Fe Building sat in front of the railroad yards in the city's early years. The Santa Fe was designed by architect Daniel H. Burnham. He also oversaw the construction of the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893, dubbed "the White City," as well as the 1909 Plan for Chicago, an urban design forever ensuring green space and public access along the lakefront.

The Santa Fe Building is located at 224 South Michigan Avenue - the corner of Michigan Avenue and Jackson.  It is right next to Symphony Hall and one block south of the Chicago Art Museum. The Notre Dame Chicago Commons is located on the 2nd floor of the Santa Fe Building - Suite 220.
