1 College Senior

Campus Housing: Don't live on campus. Looked at housing and it was very expensive and very old. Ugh.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't recommend housing to anyone ever, in any situation.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are good because they are close to classes and are in the downtown area but the dorms' space, amenities,and cost all depend on the which dorm you stay in.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is what it is. Not everyone obeys the rules so you have the crazy people screaming the the halls at 2am, the morons burning plastic in their microwaves and almost starting a fire, and then the kids down the hall smoking in their rooms.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Fun being on campus as a freshman, but moving off do to expense .

In terms of housing, Columbia College is a college student's dream. The College's "campus housing" is no ordinary campus housing. If you live "on campus," you are living in a high-rise apartment in downtown Chicago. Not only are the housing opportunities affordable, but they are beautiful apartments. Every option is located right on campus, no longer than 10 minutes away from class.

Each apartment or "dorm room" is complete with a bathroom and a full kitchen. It is a privilege to live on campus when you go to school at Columbia. Not only will you meet incredible people that you can connect with and learn from, but you will also learn to live on your own, be self-sufficient, and when you look out your window, you're looking at the third largest city and perhaps most beautiful in the United States.
