 Student Life

 Discover Chicago

chicago-skyline-360x200.jpgWith a population of nearly 3 million, Chicago is the cultural, industrial, commercial and entertainment center of the Midwest. Famed for its iconic architecture, it is the birthplace of the skyscraper and home to dozens of cultural landmarks, including the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), the Art Institute of Chicago, Field Museum and Navy Pier. Outdoor enthusiasts in Chicago enjoy swimming, running, biking and other sports on the many parks and beaches along Lake Michigan. The city’s nationally known museums draw millions of visitors each year, and those who enjoy the performing arts have many options, including the world-renowned Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Lyric Opera of Chicago and nationally recognized theater groups.

Northwestern University's Chicago campus is located in the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago, along the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan.

Streeterville is only one neighborhood in this exciting city full of unique pockets that reflect the many cultures that live here. No matter your interests (sports, art, music, theater, fitness, food, family entertainment), there are endless options. Just a few blocks away from the medical campus, there is shopping on Michigan Avenue’s “Magnificent Mile,” as well as thriving nightlife in the many restaurants, bars and clubs of the Rush Street and River North areas.
