Why Should You Choose ARC?

The safety and well-being of our residents is our priority.

ARC at Old Colony offers a home that combines the community of a residence hall with the freedom and privacy of an apartment. The quality amenities and professional, seasoned management make it the place both you and your student can agree on.

Peace of Mind

From the moment a student enters ARC’s beautiful lobby, it will be clear that we have an incomparable focus on their well-being. The community is equipped with helpful on-site management and maintenance, security cameras, 24/7 staffing and electronic key access.

Location, Location, Location

ARC is located in the heart of Chicago in the South Loop neighborhood. Students can conveniently walk to class, or use our bike storage room and bike around the city. Since our community is centrally located, most residents choose to walk, ride their bikes or take public transportation to/from class. For residents who drive, we have discounted parking rates with local garages.

A Responsive Management Team

We guarantee a 24/7 commitment to our residents. From our professional management staff and friendly leasing professionals to our maintenance team, we always have someone available to assist residents. We strive to complete work orders within 24 hours of receiving notification. Residents can easily submit a maintenance request using the online resident portal or by calling the leasing office during regular office hours.

A Simple Process

Our application and lease process is simple and tailored to today’s savvy student and parent. The lease process may be done in the office or entirely online. Starting with the application, each resident must pass a background check. After signing a lease, a guarantor (usually a parent) of each student will need to sign the Guaranty Agreement, which is then attached to the completed lease. Our leases are by-the-bed, which means that all residents are individually responsible for his or her own payment. For students or residents who are new to the area or don’t have roommates chosen, we can assist in matching roommates using our highly successful roommate matching questionnaire.
