University Professors
Blue Line Train to downtown Chicago only 2 blocks (4 minute walk from home); 20 minutes to downtown Chicago; 50 minutes to Ohare airport and Midway airport on train - cost $2.25 each way; quiet, residential suburban environment with grocery stores,restaurants, banks, and shopping close to home.

We have high speed wireless Internet services and laundry facilities on our premises. All bedrooms come wit standard furnishings and furniture.

We live in a large suburban home in Oak Park, a community famous for renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright and literary giant Ernest Hemingway. Oak Park is the first community immediately west of downtown Chicago and is therefore a highly desirable location. Our 3 kids are away at college so my husband and I have plenty of bedrooms/bathrooms to host homestay students. We have been doing this for many years and enjoy the company of students and continue to learn about different cultures through our interactions with them. Being around young people also helps us to stay connected with our own children. Both of us ate professors and teach at universities in Chicago. We lead an active lifestyle and love movies, friends, social events, sports, etc. We maintain a SAFE, CLEAN, ORGANIZED HOME especially good for students who are committed to learning. Universities close to us include Dominican University in River Forest, ELS Language Centers, Concordia University, UIC Circle Campus, Roosevelt, Columbia, Robert Morris, National Louis University, DePaul University,Harold Washington College, Truman College, Kaplan, Solex, Intrax, E-F Language Learning Centers and all locations downtown. Because we are close to downtown Chicago, it is also a perfect location for tourists and visitors who want inexpensive accommodations without the high price of downtown Chicago hotels.
