University of Chicago

Overview

University of Chicago, located in the Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, offers over 100 majors, minors and areas of specialized study that complement its Core Curriculum, an integrated and interdisciplinary sequence of courses based in small discussions.  UChicago also offers specialized programming such as “Big Problems,” a unique opportunity to tackle matters of global or universal concerns that span across multiple disciplines and interest groups, or “UChicago Careers In,” an experiential program that provides students with advising, research, and internships in business and health professions.

The house system is the center of residential and student life at UChicago.  Each house consists of communities of students who eat, hang out together, and shares their own traditions.  Beyond your house, you can fully immerse yourself in over 350 student groups and organizations, with the largest group on campus being the University Theater. Beyond campus, take advantage of your student ID card, which is also your UChicago Arts Pass.  Your ID grants you free admission or reduced ticket prices to museums, cultural venues, and other centers around the city of Chicago.

Did you know? Since 1987, the University of Chicago has hosted the largest scavenger hunt in the world. Spanning four days, SCAV is an intense blend of excitement and chaos that has taken students to Canada, Tennessee, and Kansas.
