With 2.7 million residents and a ton to do—from dining out to professional sports to museums and attractions—it is no wonder that Chicago is the third most populous city in the country. Located in Cook County and never lacking in excitement or ample apartment options, it is no wonder students flock to the city nicknamed Chicagoland.
Chicago is home to the world’s busiest airport, O’Hare International Airport. Students, politicians, and prominent speakers come to Chicago from around the world due to Chicago’s focus on topics of international importance, such as finance, economics, and telecommunications. The array of student housing options throughout Chicago makes it even easier to take advantage of the city’s numerous attractions while attending college.
The U.S. News & World Report has deemed many of Chicago’s universities among the top in the nation, including: The University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Loyola University Chicago, Illinois Institute of Technology, DePaul University, and University of Illinois at Chicago. Each of these prominent universities, as well as several other highly regarded schools, including: Chicago State University and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, are strategically located near modern and reasonably-priced student housing.
