UChicago in Real Life (UCIRL)
Tune into UChicago in Real Life, a podcast featuring interviews of current UChicago students doing fascinating things throughout the College and beyond. Past interviewees include Olympic swimmer Naomy, full-time actress and theater major Emma, and international student Aiden.
If you’re curious about topics like student life, housing, study abroad, athletics, and traditions at UChicago, we’ll be on hand to answer your questions via Decision 2018, a video series during which current students highlight some of their favorite aspects of the College.
Come visit us anytime! Admitted students can tour campus, explore campus facilities, eat a meal in one of our dining halls, and chat with current students. If you have any special requests or questions, please contact your regional admissions counselor.
Housing and Dining
Our Houses are the building blocks of social life on campus and incubators for the Life of the Mind. Before even setting foot on campus, you’ll be welcomed into a community that eats, debates, and learns together. Because all first-year students live in Houses, your House will feature heavily in your academic and social experience at the College.
