Fall Housing in Chicago
Our semester program housing facility offers the convenience and comfort necessary for an easy transition to big city living. You will be living in Chicago's newest student housing facility, ARC at Old Colony. The Old Colony building became a Chicago landmark in the 1970s and had recently been remodeled as a new and innovative residential community for students. Conveniently located in the Loop of downtown Chicago, ARC is located near all public transportation train stations and within walking distance to Chicago's greatest attractions, including Michigan Avenue, Millennium Park, Grant Park, and Buckingham Fountain. You will have the opportunity to take advantage of all that our program and Chicago has to offer this semester! View Housing Video
