I was hoping to ask about housing in terms of UChi Law. Where do we see a higher concentration of the law students living and what are the recommendations?
More importantly, what is an appropriate rate for a law student in Chicago to pay for housing?
I understand these questions are answered while considering many factors, but maybe I can seek some insight.
Would the students/alumni agree that it makes little sense to live in the actual city when considering distance to the school and $$$ of apts in the city?
Thank you so much for your help!!
Most people live in Hyde Park for 1L. I've heard of people paying as low as like 600 a month splitting a place with roommates south of 61st street and as high as like 1800ish/month for a big single in Shoreland or a building like it. After 1L, people tend to move north though a lot stay in Hyde Park all three years.
South Loop is a pretty good compromise as it gives you relatively easy access to the city and to Hyde Park.
