Housing

Nearly all of our Full-Time MBA students choose to live in Evanston, and most prefer to be within walking or biking distance of the Jacobs Center. No matter where you live, you can count on constant collaboration and a community of people you can lean on.

The McManus Living-Learning Center, just three blocks from the Jacobs Center, serves as a wonderful housing option for Kellogg students, their partners and children. The center also houses group study rooms, computer labs, exercise facilities, a game room, an underground parking garage and a lounge area. For an inside look, check out this blog post from a McManus resident and Kellogg student, Tony Shan.

You may also choose from a variety of off-campus apartments. An excellent public transportation system of buses and light rail enables you to live in Evanston, Chicago or nearby suburbs and conveniently commute to classes. Once you are admitted to Kellogg, we will provide additional resources for finding housing.

Getting to Campus

Getting to campus is easy, thanks to a comprehensive intercampus shuttle system, campus parking and public transit options. Explore our campus maps and our transit system online or plan a campus visit to explore in person.
