Find the perfect Illinois photo for your project

The Image Database provides consistent, quality images of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that should be used whenever possible to reflect the excellence of Illinois on websites, printed materials, presentations and other communications pieces. Each image was chosen to help you illustrate your program through unique and universally applicable images.

Images are offered in two formats and in four different versions in order to meet your visual needs. In the Image Database you will find one high-resolution tiff image and three jpg files. The jpg files are versions with resolutions that can be used for web, print or PowerPoint presentations.

All images in the database are free for use in university promotions; they are not authorized for any other uses.
