Higher GPA—Research has shown that students who live on campus perform better academically

"Since I was a member of the Honors community, I really liked the privilege of living with the students in the Honors community. We would frequently study for exams together, so it was nice that we didn't have to leave our building to do so."—Erin O.

One Bill—One bill pays for high speed wi-fi internet connection, streaming movies, a cable package, garbage and water, laundry facilities, and groceries.

"I loved living in Simpson... It was so convenient having Simpson Dining just downstairs. The coolest part about living in Simpson, though, was the amount of pride everyone had for their floor."—Melissa S.

City Life—The residence halls are in close proximity to the Red Line and Gold Coast.

"Living at the Water Tower Campus in Baumhart hall was my favorite residence hall. We have an awesome block party every semester, and Baumhart hall is in the heart of the city literally. it's less than a one block walk to the magnificent mile."—Jabari M.

Free Fun—Department of Residence Life staff provides free and subsidized programs.

"Mertz was a very social and fun residence hall! Any time I walked in through the doors, I could always expect to see someone in the lounge to say hello to! Living in Mertz was a great opportunity to make friends and connections that will last all through college!"—Grace A.

Cozy Safe—Our residence halls provide safety features and support that most apartments do not provide.

"It's great to have campus safety around as part of our community. I enjoy being greeted by desk receptionists and Campus Safety Officers when I go into my residence hall."—Joshua R.

Save Time—Proximity to classes saves you time to enjoy other events provided by Residence Life.

"I absolutely LOVE living in Fordham Hall! The location on the Northside of campus cannot be beat: there's easy access to classroom buildings in addition to the convenience of the CTA, restaurants, and shops. The rooms are the perfect size, and the floor-to-ceiling windows truly allow residents to see some breath-taking lake and city views. The high-rise life cannot be beat!"—Lauren H.
