Default Argonne Area Housing

Hey All

I am moving from Ann Arbor - to the Argonne, for an intern in the Argonne Lab in a week. I have been trying craigslist to find housing, but I dont even know what places to search for if I want temp housing for 2 months in Argonne

I have lived in grad student housing for a long time, so I dont need much to get by, but proximity is the criteria, which is closest (and preferably cheap) if am gonna be working in Argonne ....?

where would I search - craigslist gives me an option of these places in Illinois - carbondale, chicago, decatur, peoria, bloomington, urbana, quad cities, rockford, springfield


Any thoughts on housing - near the Argonne lab would be so helpful and well appreciated

Looking forward to your response - thanks !

Deepak

Argonne is closest to Chicago. Surrounding areas are Darien, Willowbrook, Lemont, Hinsdale as well as others.

Westmont will be closest in terms of "incorporated places". The Hinsdale mailing addess applies to places right across Cass Ave/91st St from the Lab, but that is quirk of the old unincorporated areas.

Look for apartment close to I-55/Stevenson Expwy and Cass Ave. If you are south of 75th street you can practically bicycle to the Lab. You can look east to the area around Rt 83, but the apartment quality is better west...

I know someone works at Argonne and lives in Woodridge. It's very suburban, close to Argonne, and housing is cheaper.

Woodridge is a great start. Darien is very nice too but much more expensive.

Woodridge is definately the closest. You should be able to find something reasonable to rent there or Lemont.

Woodridge and Westmont both are great choices if you are working at the lab and looking for affordable housing that is close.

Communities at Ascot Glen is pretty nice. It's located in Willowbrook, and is fairly close.

I live right down the street from Argonne, and if you would like, I could drive it let you know exactly how far it is.

I can't imagine it being further than 4-5 miles away...maybe less.

Hi. I am a undergrad who is going to work in Argonne this summer for ten weeks with a grad student. We are looking for apartments in walkable distance. Would you please recommend us some places to look at? Thanks a lot! We are not driving so walkable or bike-able distance will be great.

Both of these areas have become quite ghetto. I'd look elsewhere.
