Campus Open Houses

For over 100 years, Cobb Gate has welcomed visitors to the Main Quad. Make your own mini Cobb Gate!

In addition to regular campus visits throughout the year, we offer expanded programming during campus Open Houses in the spring, summer, and fall. These Open Houses give prospective students and their families a chance to get to know the University of Chicago’s singular academic community, our campus, and our home in Hyde Park.

UChicago Summer Fridays — June through August

Kick off a great weekend in Chicago with UChicago Summer Fridays! Introduce yourself to the University of Chicago by taking a tour of campus, chatting with current students, and attending an information session with an admissions counselor. After you’ve explored our campus, take the rest of the afternoon to explore Hyde Park and the rest of the city. Sunday afternoon Cubs games, Ultimate Frisbee in Grant Park, bike rides along the lakeshore, evening concerts in Millennium Park—summer in Chicago is magical, and we want to be able to share that experience with you!
