SAIC has great residence halls located within walking distance of all of our academic buildings, but if you are more comfortable living off campus, use this website to find information to make your search, move, and living situation as easy as possible.

Our Off-Campus Housing in Chicago Guide [PDF] includes information on every step of the moving process from finding a roommate to maps showing the average rent for an apartment in specific neighborhoods.

To assist with the search itself we have partnered with Places4Students to make the process as easy as possible. The website gives you access to apartment listings that show photos, floor plans, and features. You can also use it to find a roommate.

Moving off campus is a big step into adulthood. Residence Life is dedicated to facilitating the growth of the SAIC community an helping you with this transition. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact our offices by email, phone, or fax. Or pop in for a visit. Thank you for visiting the Residence Life Off-Campus Housing web page, and happy hunting!
