Clark/Division is an unrenovated Red Line State Street Subway Station with a single island platform with cream colored columns along the edges. It has an arched ceiling with separate arches over both of the tracks. There are a few fully red signs along the platform walls. The island platform itself has its original red illuminated signs that say Clark from when it opened in 1943. To leave the platform there is an up escalator and a single staircase up to a mezzanine level. The cinderblock-looking grey tiles on the platform along these two separate egress points have original Clark & Division lettering written in red along them. These lead up to a mezzanine that has a central fare control area with the turnstiles angled towards the NE and NW corner streetstairs, the top of the escalator in between and a high exit turnstile angled towards the SE and SW corner streetstairs. These 4 streetstairs have red painted railings and there is one at each corner of Clark & Division Streets. The mezzanine has a tile scheme of marble looking walls for the central area of the mezzanine, and tiny tiles of a similar color along the staircases and escalator. There is original black lettering along the walls that include the respective corners of the exits, one along the staircase says To Trains, and finally one for Public Telephones directly after the turnstiles and a closed newsstand within fare control. The mezzanine also has an original cashiers booth with a marble base.
