Living in Chicago

Living in the City

Our campus is located in the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago along the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan. No matter your extracurricular interests — sports, art, music, theater, fitness, food — there are endless options in Chicago.

Chicago offers a diversity of neighborhoods and communities, so you’ll have plenty of options to find a place to call home. Feinberg's central location in the Streeterville neighborhood offers many housing options within walking distance to campus, and many Feinberg students choose to live nearby. Chicago’s extensive public transportation network can be accessed within steps of campus, providing easy access to the various neighborhoods and experiences the city offers.

As you begin to research housing options, we recommend you start with these housing resources.

Training in the City

Chicago offers an incredible backdrop for MD training. The size and cultural diversity of our city allows us to infuse cultural competency training into our students’ clinical experiences, including our clinics in Chinatown and on Devon.

My interview is when I really felt I could find my place here. I was also drawn to its location in Chicago — it’s a great city. I’ll be spending several years here and as a musician and foodie, I knew I would love exploring all the concerts and restaurants. ”

I enjoy living downtown without spending an exorbitant amount of money, and I love the variety of food, entertainment and people who call Chicago home. ”
