Campus Life

A Student-Led Introduction to UChicago
Current students describe academic and social life at the University of Chicago by sharing their experiences.

Arts, Athletics, Activities, and More

A truly rewarding college experience allows you to construct your own schedule. Scholar-athletes, principal cellists, and quiz-bowl champions have plenty of time during the day to do what they love outside of the classroom. With over 400 clubs and a campus alive with yearly events and wild traditions, you’re going to find something you like to do here. We guarantee it.


Rigorous inquiry demands diverse perspectives. Academic programs and resources such as the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and International House serve a diverse community of students, faculty, and staff.

Excitement at Every Turn

From our campus to the pleasures of Hyde Park, the lakefront parks and beaches, and then on to downtown Millennium Park and beyond, UChicago students adopt the many corners of the Windy City as their home.
