Living in the Quad Cities

Palmer’s main campus is located in the Quad Cities region, a cool, creative, connected, and prosperous bi-state community centered on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River.  Encompassing six counties in Illinois and Iowa, the area offers something for everyone. The Quad Cities region is nestled on the only section of the Mississippi River that runs east to west, and students enjoy the 200+ miles of running, hiking and biking trails, and the great fishing and boating opportunities throughout the region. Experience year-round festivals and special events, immerse yourself in the Quad Cities’ strong and diverse music scene, learn about the community’s rich history and culture and taste the flavor of local flair - all in the Quad Cities.
