Northwestern University has two campuses in the US - one in Chicago and one in Evanston. Residential Services responsibilities and facilities are all on the main Evanston campus. Evanston is a vibrant community located just 12 miles north of downtown Chicago along the shore of Lake Michigan. While Evanston and the surrounding suburbs offer many areas for shopping, dining, and entertainment, it is also easy and convenient to get to even more options throughout Chicago. The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) buses and trains, as well as Metra trains both serve Evanston, making transportation to and from Chicago quick and affordable.
