At Windermere House, you’ll be living within easy reach of the University of Chicago. Take a five-minute stroll down to the Museum of Science and Industry after class, where you can experience the full force of a tornado or descend into the depths of a replica coal mine with its incredible interactive exhibits. On weekends, you can use the nearby transport links to catch a train uptown. Marvel at the masterpieces in the Art Institute of Chicago, or catch a concert at the legendary Chicago Theatre. In winter, grab your skates and glide across the ice that twists its way through the Maggie Daley Park for an ice-skating experience you’ll never forget.

Getting to the University of Chicago will be a breeze when you live at Windermere House. It’s a short 15-minute stroll to class, but if you’re running late you can also take one of the regular bus routes running past your door and get to your lectures in seven minutes. On weekends, take advantage of 57th Street train station down the street to explore your new neighborhood – it’s just three minutes away on foot.

When it’s time to unwind, you’ll feel right at home at Windermere House. This elegantly restored building was originally one of Chicago’s finest hotels, and still features many lavish art deco touches. As you wander through the lobby, say hello to the concierge who’ll happily pass on any packages you’ve had delivered. Ride the elevator up to your spacious apartment, and admire the view of Jackson Park from your window as you sip a coffee. Then, turn on the air conditioning, put your feet up and relax.

After a long day, you can unwind with a long, hot shower in the bathroom. When hunger hits, fix yourself a snack in your well-equipped kitchen using the gas stovetop and oven. Some homes come with dishwashers, so you don’t have to worry about the washing up after your tasty meal. But if you’d still rather not cook, you can head downstairs to Piccolo Mondo for some authentic Italian pasta or a cup of chunky minestrone soup.

Later, head to the laundry facilities on your floor to get started on your chores, and visit the fitness center to burn off some energy while you wait. Back at your apartment, you’ll have lots of space to store your clothes whether you choose a one, two or three-bedroom home. Extra storage space is available should you need it, and you’ll also have access to secure on-site parking and bike racks.
