Housing Options & Information

30 East
30 East is the newest addition to Columbia College Chicago's residence hall portfolio. It's just steps away from the new Student Center and one block from Grant Park. It houses the Residence Life office and approximately 340 Columbia College Chicago students. 

The University Center
Since Fall of 2004, the University Center (UC) has created a home away from home for approximately 1,700 college students from Columbia College Chicago and nearby DePaul & Roosevelt Universities.

The Dwight
This building was originally built in 1911 as the headquarters of the Dwight Brothers Paper Company. The Dwight has been fully renovated but still stays true to its heritage as a place of aesthetics and creativity.

The Arc
Originally built in 1893, the Old Colony Building is an architectural masterpiece located right in the heart of Chicago's downtown Loop. Make no mistake: "Historic" doesn't have to mean "Old". The Arc has been fully remodeled and modernized; providing Columbia College Chicago students with contemporary design, stylish amenities, and engaging public spaces.

The Flats
New for Fall 2023, Columbia College Chicago will be housing students in The Flats, located at 829 South Wabash, part of East-West University. The Flats provides students with unparalled location on the Wabash corridor, offering students the same ammenities they would find in our other properties with spectacular views of the city and Lake Michigan. We are thrilled to bring this additional community online for our students to experience on-campus life!
