Overnight Visits

High school seniors are invited to experience the University of Chicago through an overnight visit. Visiting seniors will eat dinner in a dining hall with their student host, stay overnight in one of our residence halls, and can visit a class.

Register for an overnight visit

Overnight visits are available only for high school seniors on Tuesdays and Thursdays in October and November.

In order to stay in a UChicago dorm, our guests and their parents/guardians must complete this overnight waiver and return it to our office at least four business days prior to your scheduled visit.

Fax overnight waivers to: 773.702.4199 

Or mail to:
The University of Chicago
Office of College Admissions
ATTN: Overnight Visit
1101 East 58th Street, Suite 105

We will confirm that your overnight waiver has been received within two business days of receipt. Accommodations for the overnight visit are not confirmed until the overnight waiver has been received.

How to prepare

Bring a sleeping bag, toiletries, pillow, change of clothing, and something to sleep in. Students must arrive in the Admissions Office, Rosenwald Hall, by 4:30 p.m. on the day of the overnight stay. We recommend that students arrange their plans for the following morning in advance of the overnight.
