Computer Systems Institute’s Skokie campus is located in Cook County in a suburb of Chicago. We are 1/4 mile west of the Edens Expressway (I-94) and approximately 200 yards north of the Skokie Swift (CTA Yellow Line), a major train and bus hub. Skokie is conveniently located only 16 miles north/northwest of downtown Chicago, making it very accessible for students who live outside the city to travel into the city.
