About Chicago

Due to the chilly winds that frequently blow in from Lake Michigan, Chicago is referred to as "the windy city." Both in terms of size and population, it ranks third in America. The word "Chicago" is a Native American word that means "strong or great," and the city certainly lives up to its name. 

Jazz music, Chicago-style pizza, Chicago-style hot dogs, and gangster films from the 1920s all spring to mind when you hear the name Chicago. You'll love the variety of cultures that can be found in its bustling streets, giving you the impression that other parts of the world are nearby. The city of Chicago is renowned for its magnificent architecture, vibrant music scene, mouthwatering cuisine, and historic neighbourhoods. 

Due to the city's allure and proximity to some of the best educational institutions in the nation, Chicago is also regarded as a popular choice among international students.

Suburbs in Chicago

Chicago has a number of suburbs and neighbourhoods that students can call home during their stay in the city. As a student, you can book student housing Chicago in various areas that differ in traffic, transportation, amenities, and location with respect to your university of choice. The best suburbs in Chicago include The Loop, Hyde Park, Logan Square, and Lincoln Park.

The Loop

The Loop, right in the middle of downtown, is frequently referred to as the soul of Chicago. This upscale area on the Chicago River is the gold standard for comfort. You have unmatched access to some of Chicago's top cultural institutions if you live in the Loop. It is the perfect place for young professionals wanting to make the most of their free time because of this, as well as the interesting public parks, delectable food, and public transportation to bring you anywhere else in the city. Our accommodation options there include Letterman Chicago.

Hyde Park

The South Side of Chicago is home to the historic and culturally significant neighbourhood of Hyde Park, which is situated along the lake. Some of Chicago's most important institutions and tourist destinations are located in the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is active and diversified because it is home to a broad mix of students, young professionals, and families. Within Hyde Park's boundaries are the University of Chicago, the Museum of Science and Industry, and a piece of the lovely Jackson Park. Hyde Park is also close to Lake Michigan, providing locals and guests with stunning views and simple access to the 18-mile lakefront route for biking and running.

Logan Square

Logan Square, Chicago's current hipster royalty, is a northwest side neighbourhood noted for its dedicated farm-to-table eateries, quirky gift shops, independent theatre, farmers' markets frequented by vintage-clad fashionistas, and more quaint coffee shops than people. Logan Square's stylish, hip neighbourhood has grown in popularity in recent years. It is situated along the Blue Line in Chicago's northwest, close to Wicker Park and Bucktown. Given the relaxed attitude and abundance of cool places to visit, it's a terrific spot for creatives to reside. Our accommodation options there include Trendy Style Residence w/ Coworking + Outdoor Area and Spacious Styled Apt. w/ Workspace.

Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park, a peaceful respite from the city's busier areas, is known for its tree-lined avenues and Brooklyn-style brownstones. Still, it also has destination-worthy shopping, acclaimed restaurants, and remarkable culture. The Lincoln Park neighbourhood, which takes its name from Chicago's greatest park, is regarded by many as one of the best places to live in the city. This area is one of the most well-known for a reason: it is only one mile from downtown and situated directly on the lakefront.

Cost of Living in Chicago

It's true that Chicago has a higher cost of living than the typical American city, which is 22% higher than the national average and 33% higher than the state average. Housing costs in the city are 60% higher than the national average, while utility costs are just 6% lower. In Chicago, rent runs about $1,874 per month. The local real estate market, your income, and your spending habits can all affect how much it costs to live there. Remember, though, Casita offers you affordable student accommodation in several neighbourhoods across Chicago.

Transportation in Chicago

The Red Line train, which runs north and south through Downtown and along the coast, is one of the most popular and frequent trains. It makes stops at Chicago's most popular sites and busiest neighbourhoods. The Red Line runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The CTA is the nation's second-largest public transit system, with eight "L" train lines and 129 bus routes throughout Chicago. CTA bus lines provide convenient service across the city, with stops every few blocks. Fortunately, Chicago has one of the best public transportation systems in the world. There are many options between the Chicago Transit Authority and the Metra Commuter Rail, bike lanes, and plentiful taxis. 

Life in Chicago

Chicago is one of the most picturesque cities in the country. It is also a jazz and blues hub with a rich history, artistic heritage, and cultural diversity. Chicago has the clearest seas, except those in the Caribbean. Due to its location along Lake Michigan, Chicago is fortunate to enjoy a few beautiful beaches and a glimpse of the pristine blue water. Another element that sets this city apart is the 37 movable bridges that span the Chicago River. The numerous Chicago festivals held throughout the year, which promise the best experience and are a lot of fun, must also be mentioned.

Cloud Gate

Overall, Cloud Gate is impressive because of the skyline's reflection in the bean; it's a beautiful sight to behold. The ice skating ring is a must-see attraction. You could also take pictures of the lovely Christmas tree that is there during the holiday season. 

Museum of Science and Industry

The Museum of Science and Industry is considered the first in the United States to feature "hands-on" exhibitions. Hundreds of exhibitions encourage visitors to interact with them. Permanent and changing exhibits, as well as an OMNIMAX cinema, may be found at the MSI.

360 Chicago Observation Deck

Views of Chicago's skyline and beyond may be seen from 360 Chicago, a vast glass-walled observation deck. If you're feeling daring, the deck's newest feature, "Tilt," will delight you. You will be turned outward at an angle to look straight down from the glass enclosure, giving you a unique view from more than 1,000 feet above the Magnificent Mile.
