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.

Fall Open House — October 14, 2019

At our Fall Open House, you will experience faculty-taught model classes, student-led campus tours, and presentations about our College Houses, study-abroad, and comprehensive pre-professional programs. Dean of Admissions, Jim Nondorf, and our staff will also discuss UChicago’s extensive academic and co-curricular programs, the admissions process, and financial aid.

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!

Summer Friday events begin in Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, located at the corner of 59th St. & Woodlawn Avenue.
