Where is North Central?
A Location That Offers the Best of Both Worlds
This safe, friendly city of 150,000 has been ranked as one of the "best places to live" in the United States by Money Magazine. North Central's beautiful 65-acre residential campus is located in a National Historic District just a two-minute walk from downtown Naperville's stores, banks, restaurants, parks and coffee shops. Easily reached by car, train or airplane, Naperville is just 45 kilometers from downtown Chicago (30 minutes by train) and only 30 minutes from Chicago O'Hare International Airport.
Home to three million people from around the world, Chicago offers practically unlimited cultural opportunities - from world-renowned museums and theaters to annual events like the Chicago Jazz Festival. Students can participate in Chicago Term courses and internships as well as outings to Chicago's neighborhoods, sporting events, festivals and theaters. The train station to downtown Chicago is just a two-minute walk from campus, and a 30-minute train ride will take you to the heart of this exciting city.
