North Central College - Naperville, IL

Advantages of Our Location

If location is everything, we have it all!

North Central is nestled in the residential Historic District of Naperville, named one of the "most desirable places to live in the central United States" by Money Magazine. Take a five-minute walk downtown and you can explore interesting shops, grab a cup of joe, or enjoy a night out.

If you want to get away for the day, just hop on the train – also a few blocks from campus. About 30 minutes later you’ll arrive in Chicago. We consider the city a learning lab where students regularly take classes, visit renowned museums, listen to legendary musicians and catch shows in a world-class theatre district.

But whether you stay in the burbs or head to the city, you’ll tap into some of the best internship opportunities in the country. Very soon you may find yourself working next to leading scientists, educators, software engineers and business minds. So attend an upcoming Freshman Visit Program to learn more about all we have to offer.
