Housing and Residence Life: Residence Halls
This national historic landmark was built in 1906 and achieved notoriety as the first building with a steel structure in Chicago. It houses 200 of our students and is located at State and Madison Streets at 7 West Madison, the exact center of the city. The corner of State and Madison was historically known in the early 20th century as the world's busiest intersection. Jones Hall is also located a short distance from Chicago's latest architectural accomplishment, Millennium Park.
162 N. State
The 162 North State Street Residences is truly in the heart of Chicago's world-class theatre district, surrounded by Chicago Theatre, the Goodman Theatre, and the Oriental Theatre. Also located at the first floor of the residence hall is SAIC's own Gene Siskel Film Center. An architectural achievement in itself, the 162 North State Street Residences is a combination of new construction and an existing 1906 structure. Also similar to the Jones Hall, formerly known as the Chicago Building, the 162 North State Street Residences is just a short walk to Millennium Park.
