Lodging

When you stay in the Wabash Building, you’ll find yourself in the heart of Chicago’s Loop, steps from everything that makes this city hum—all at far less than the cost of a hotel room. With jaw-dropping views and floor-to-ceiling windows, these are not the residence halls you remember from college.

We offer double- or private-bedroom suites on floors 15-31 of the 32-story Wabash Building. Lodging fees are on a per-person, per-night basis, and you may include cafeteria dining or catering options for your guests. Learn more on our Lodging page.
