Units Units

University Center houses 1,700 students and 51 resident staff members in the heart of downtown Chicago. Six different unit types, including options for students with disabilities, offers choice in student living.

Student Housing

Residents select an academic year contract (40 weeks) and may combine with a 10-week summer contract with continuous enrollment. Contracts are available through your institution. All units are fully furnished and include the following amenities with additional upgrades available:
  • Central heating and air conditioning
  • Satellite television (now with HD!)
  • Basic phone service
  • High-speed internet
  • Complete access to rooms during holiday periods

Suite-Style Units

The north half of each floor offers traditional suite-style units and features a quiet study room and a cozy social lounge complete with kitchenette, flat-screen TV and comfy couches.

Apartment-Style Units

Looking for a less traditional option with a little more privacy? The south half of each floor has apartment-style units. Don’t worry about living or dining room furniture! We have you covered with couches, bookcases, and a kitchen table. Apartment kitchens are equipped with a sink, oven/stove top, microwave, full-sized refrigerator and dishwasher. Contracts available through your institution.
