Campus, Hyde Park, and Chicago
Located in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood, just 15 minutes south of the center of Chicago, the University of Chicago is uniquely positioned to contribute to, and to draw from, the strength and diversity of this world-class metropolis as well as the world at large.
We invite you to stroll among the tall, old trees in the botanic garden that is our 217-acre campus. Look up to see the playful grotesques and gargoyles that grace our buildings; step inside to walk along the paths of Nobel laureates, dedicated teachers, researchers, and tomorrow’s leaders.

Our Hyde Park Neighborhood
Growing, changing, ever-evolving, yet deeply rooted in tradition, our residential neighborhood is alive with history. Hyde Park is home to lifelong residents, diverse ideas, beautiful vistas, and thriving culture.
The City of Chicago
Chicago is our laboratory, our playground, and our muse. Students take advantage of Chicago’s internships, sports, neighborhoods, concerts, restaurants, and vast research opportunities. They even study the city itself through the Chicago Studies Program.
