Timeline of Events
Frances Harrington, a practicing interior designer, traveled to Chicago to provide a series of lectures for interior design professionals. She soon found a growing interest in the study of interior design and expanded her offerings by creating the Harrington Institute of Interior Design.
In 2003, Harrington Institute changed its name to Harrington College of Design to reflect the broadening of the school’s design-related programs of study.
When Harrington retired in 1959, her former student Robert Marks assumed leadership of the school. Marks added many programs and degree options to the school’s curriculum.
The 84-year-old interior design school located in the Loop, is winding down operations and will close permanently by August 2018, school administrators said. As of April 2015 no new students are being admitted.

I'm so glad I found this website! After attending Harrington College, I wasn't able to find a job in my field and got stuck with over 30 grand in loans. Thankfully, I'm now paying $0/month and will have my loans forgiven at the end of the term! Thanks guys!Carly Young, Dallas
