We hope you can make it to campus to visit soon. If not, here is a way to make your own campus with nothing more than a piece of paper, some adhesive, and a sharp object (preferably scissors or an x-acto knife — safety first!).
Below are five papercraft projects for you to enjoy before we see you next. Have fun!

Harper Memorial Library, with its elegant Gothic architecture, serves as a campus landmark for many. The first two floors are comprised of classrooms and administrative offices where students attend writing workshops, get help from a tutor, or meet friends and faculty at the Café. Additionally, the Arley D. Cathey Learning Center, a 24-hour hub of College intellectual and social life, supports individual and collaborative learning in a grand setting.
Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, with its Interreligious Center, serves as the hub of spiritual life at the University of Chicago, offering diverse religious events and ceremonies on a daily basis, as well as regular interreligious gatherings. In addition, Rockefeller hosts major performing arts and academic events, and serves as the locus for University-wide gatherings and celebrations of many different kinds, including Convocations.
There is perhaps no better symbol of the University of Chicago than Cobb Gate. Lined with expressive grotesques and draped in colorful ivy, Cobb Gate has stood as the entrance to the Main Quad for over 100 years. Passing underneath its exalted arch, one becomes a participant in a rich educational dialogue as well as a member of the greater historical University community.
The Logan Center, perfectly situated to capture the breath-taking views of UChicago and the city, offers an array of arts programming and resources to students and Hyde Park residents. One of the Logan Center's most flexible spaces, the beautiful performance hall, performs a variety of functions from concerts to film screenings to lectures (… just to name a few!) In addition to classrooms and rehearsal spaces, the Logan Center is filled with lounges and nooks for studying and socializing.
The Joe and Rika Mansueto Library features the most modern and innovative reading room on campus, as it's distinctive UV blocking panels that make up the large dome allow students to study while basking in the sun or appreciating a light snowfall. Beneath the reading room is a massive storage space that holds up to 3.5 million volumes, all of which are retrieved completely automatically using a system of robotic cranes.
