35th–Bronzeville–IIT (formerly Tech–35th) is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, located in the Chicago, Illinois neighborhood of Douglas and serving the Green Line. It is situated at 16 E 35th Street, just east of State Street.
The station opened on June 6, 1892. In October 1962, the station, then known as "Tech-35th", caught fire. The northbound platform was destroyed, and service between the adjacent Cermak and Indiana stations was suspended for four days. The station operated using temporary platforms until its renovation in 1965.
Currently, the station serves the historic neighborhood of Bronzeville as well as the Illinois Institute of Technology campus, including Shimer College, which is located immediately across State Street from the station. The station also serves Guaranteed Rate Field, though the Red Line station of Sox–35th is closer. In April 2011, a new Metra station opened between the two CTA stations, providing a convenient transfer point for those traveling to and from the suburbs.
The station features a farecard-only entrance at 3400S, on what would normally be 34th Street.
