brought to you by The Career Center and the Illini Union

LOCATION: Illini Union Room 335 (3rd floor, north side of the building, door is next to the vending machines)


The portrait lab is closed for the semester. It will reopen in Fall 2024.

During the days/hours that the Portrait Lab is open, students can come on a first-come, first-serve basis. If the line is long, we will cut it off 20 minutes prior to the end time. Each session should take 5 minutes. Student headshots are done with a professional background (1 option only), lighting, and equipment. You will have a chance to see your photo on the computer before you leave. Once approved, the photographer send an email to the individual via WeTransfer. You will one (1) week download your photo from WeTransfer.
