Options for Rush students

Rush University is developing a new master facility plan that supports Rush’s vision for education, patient care, research and community engagement. This plan will include significant changes to our campus, including our former on-campus housing site, Center Court Gardens, or CCG, which permanently closed on June 30, 2016.
