State Street Village (SSV)

State Street Village, designed by acclaimed international architect Helmut Jahn, consists of three five-story buildings which face the primary thoroughfare running through Main Campus.  One of its most distinctive features is that the Green Line elevated train runs behind it—giving this residence hall a distinctly Chicago-type vibe! SSV offers 367 beds in two suite-style buildings (two students per bedroom) and one apartment-style building (one student per bedroom).

Campus housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis. It is recommended that graduate students submit contracts for housing as early as possible.
