Resident Life

Living in Chicago

Chicago is a lively and vibrant city that is home to over 2.7 million people.

Nothing is better than summers in Chicago when residents can enjoy over 29 miles of beach in the city. Residents at Rush live in many neighborhoods all throughout the city including Wicker Park, West Loop, Bucktown, South Loop, Old Town, Gold Coast, Lincoln Park, and Streeterville.
