Find Apartments on Chicago’s South Side

South Side

The South Side of Chicago and its many apartments for rent encompass more than half of Chicago's total territory, and the South Side's influence on Chicago culture resonates strongly. The neighborhoods on the South Side have varied and interesting histories. Among the historic South Side communities you’ll find apartments near an erstwhile waterfront retreat for Chicago’s elite; there are apartments for rent in working-class enclaves that were built by immigrants during the 19th century; there are student-friendly apartment rentals next to a land grant that sprouted into a world-renowned university; and there's a neighborhood that became a hotbed of music, art and African American culture in the wake of the Great Migration of the early 20th century.
