Columbia College occupies fourteen buildings, including four high-rise student residences, in the heart of downtown Chicago.
Until recently the Loop consisted almost exclusively of office buildings, but with the State Street revival now in full swing, Millennium Park, particularly in the summer, drawing crowds of both tourists and residents, the Loop has become a great place to call home.
New and old towers grace the skyline along Michigan Avenue, and condominium conversions deeper inside the Loop have attracted a growing number of residents to the heart of the city. New construction condominiums in the Loop are available for rent, as are apartments in traditional apartment buildings. Apartments range from the moderately-priced to the ultra-luxurious. Downtown city dwellers enjoy access to a wide range of restaurants, festivals and entertainment options as well as proximity to a multitude of national retailers and department stores that cover pretty much any shopping need you would have.
Loop residents are close to Grant Park, Lake Michigan, Soldier Field, Museum Campus, the Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park, The Art Institute of Chicago and Navy Pier. What's more, every line of the El makes multiple stops in the Loop, so access to anything else in Chicago is a breeze.
