Westwood College O’Hare Airport Campus

The Westwood O'Hare Airport college campus is located in northwestern Chicago, near the famous, bustling O'Hare International Airport.

O'Hare International airport, positioned only 17 miles northwest of the downtown Chicago area, was rated the best airport in North American nine years in a row. It provides a greater number of connections to a greater number of locations at more frequent intervals than any airport the world over. Over 76 million travelers passed through O'Hare International Airport in 2006. The airport services 60 foreign destinations, making it one of the strongest in international presence. It is also the second busiest airport in not only the United States, but the world as well.

As if the airport's current facilities weren't impressive enough, O'Hare International Airport is undergoing a $6 billion modernization program, which will straighten the airport's overlapping runways to resemble a parallel configuration, thereby decreasing the number of delays by 79 percent and improving the airfield's capacity by 60 percent. The modernization program will benefit the airport with additional revenue, customers with reduced airfares and the surrounding community with extra jobs. Students that graduate from Westwood College’s business, technology or other Chicago program will have an obvious edge when vying for those positions.

You may worry that attending Westwood's O'Hare Airport college could prove distracting, being so close to a noisy airport. You can dismiss those concerns. The Chicago Airport System has a Community Noise Resource Center devoted specifically to creating programs that protect citizens from airport-produced noise pollution. Airports in Chicago use noise abatement flight processes, such as choosing routes over scarcely populated areas, to reduce the loud sound of planes in nearby communities.

Amid the peace and quiet on Westwood's O'Hare Airport campus, students will find a wealth of amenities and activities. Students can partake in government clubs, the student-run newspaper, Honor society and various clubs related to the specific degree programs.
