1) The beach.

2) If you desire an actual shelter, I'd look into a hostel. Hosteling International has a pretty big place downtown for as low as $30 a night.

If you don't mind skeevy nearly-homeless mentally ill drug addicts and child molestors, the Wilson Club Men's Hotel in Uptown has really cheap rooms. A comparable place might be the Hotel Chateau in Lakeview, but you don't get the chicken-wire ceilings at the Chateau. Here's an excellent review of the latter:

The hostel downtown has AC and is nice. There is one in Lincoln Park but no AC (it can be really really hot in the summer) it was about 20 bucks a day (but you shared the room) I was lucky except there was this one woman as shady and down on her luck, in my room. Other than that, the one downtown, you meet people and at night a group of us met in the front and went out. It was nice. Now if you are homeless-try renting a room. Don't blow your money on staying in a hostel.

I didn't even know they moved until a guy was asking me for directions around the Clinton Blue Line stop. He kept pointing west. I felt bad I couldn't point him in the right direction at least. I had to go look it up later.

This is a link to the place Drover referenced a few posts up. I've heard good things about this place and the location is excellent (just off Michigan Ave/State St/Loop area, downtown).

I stayed there last year. I would recommend it to any one. Had an easy time getting to EL lines and other places. You meet some cool people there also. It's like City-Data, but in real life.

Hebi, if you have some idea of coming into the US on a student visa without a job you are in for a shock. You need a job and a sponsor. If you have a job you do not need to sleep on the streets. Chicagoland has 10M people of which many oare unemployed. American are employed before foreigh nationals unless the skill is one that an American cannot provide. I can't imagine what it would be. I might add that Chicago is not an inexpensive place to live. You'll need a minimum of $40 US per day if you can't find a cheap place to stay. You need to factor in the exchange rate.
