Campus Life

Main Quad
The University of Chicago is where the fearless pursuit of truth comes to live. Our distinctive form and style of education and our rigorous pursuit of knowledge have established us as one of the world’s most influential institutions of higher learning.

Arts, Athletics, Activities, and More

Scholar-athletes, principal cellists, and quiz-bowl champions have plenty of opportunity to do what they love outside of the classroom. With over 400 student activities and a campus alive with yearly events and wild traditions, the question isn't if you'll get involved, but how.


Rigorous inquiry demands diverse perspectives. Academic programs and resources such as the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and the Center for Identity + Inclusion serve a diverse community of students, faculty, and staff.

Excitement at Every Turn

On a leafy campus, in the vibrant neighborhood of Hyde Park, among Chicago's 77 distinctive community areas, each student finds both a place that feels like home and plenty of opportunity to explore something new.
