As you gear up to head off to college, you don’t have to say goodbye to your closest friends. At La Casa you have the option to dorm with your friends – even if you are attending different universities!
La Casa is a community of student from different colleges and universities who live and learn together.
The added benefit of living with your friends despite attending different colleges and universities is possible because La Casa Student Housing is located in the heart of the Pilsen neighborhood just minutes away from all major universities in the Chicago area. Students have easy access to all major highways, the 18th Street stop on the CTA Pink Line, and other public transportation.
Students who live at La Casa can choose a roommate or one can be assigned.
As part of the La Casa application process you will be asked to complete a Personal Preferences and Roommate Match Survey. If you have a preferred roommate or floor mates in mind, simply list their names on your La Casa application. In instances where a roommate is not identified, La Casa staff will make a concerted effort to place you with a roommate with whom you will be most compatible. Keep in mind that there are no co-ed rooms in La Casa and no family housing is available.
The staff at La Casa will attempt to honor all roommate requests based on availability, so applying early is recommended.
