The Buckingham – Luxury High-rise Living in the Heart of the City

The Buckingham offers residents a better living experience in a high-rise building located in the heart of Chicago – steps from the best the city has to offer – from summer festivals and year-round entertainment to great restaurants and shopping.

Environmentally friendly, the Buckingham is Energy Star Certified, promotes green practices and uses eco-friendly cleaning supplies for the health of its residents and the environment. With the vintage charm of a 1929 Art Deco National Landmark building, and renovations that include the modern amenities a student expects in high-end living, the Buckingham environment provides a comfortable, secure setting so you can focus on what's important – your academic goals.

Apartment-style living, all-inclusive amenities, a professional on-site management team, easy access to public transportation and 24/7 secure access are what make the Buckingham stand apart from other area student housing.

Additionally, it is located close to many forms of public transportation, enabling students to get around the city with ease.
