If you and your family are planning to visit the University of Chicago, we encourage you to stay at the Hilton Chicago on Michigan Avenue. Hilton Chicago has partnered with the University of Chicago to provide affordable and accessible rooms in the heart of the city as well as a free shuttle to campus admissions events.

The Hilton Chicago will also make a donation to the University’s Odyssey Scholarship program for every UChicago guest who stays at the hotel. As the foundation of our “No Barriers” philosophy to holistic student support, the Odyssey Scholarship serves first-generation and low-income scholars studying at the University of Chicago.  

Closer to campus, the Hyatt Place Chicago South offers a comfortable stay within our neighborhood of Hyde Park.

Upon arrival, you will receive a welcome packet, courtesy of the Hilton Chicago and the University of Chicago. Guests of the Hilton Chicago may travel to campus on a complimentary shuttle service, provided three times daily Monday through Saturday, timed to coincide with our programming.

The Hilton Chicago is located on Michigan Avenue, walking distance from Millennium Park, shopping on State Street and the Magnificent Mile, Museum Campus (including the Adler Planetarium, the Art Institute, the Field Museum, and the Shedd Aquarium), and dozens of other attractions and restaurant options.

Registration is quick and easy and is offered at a discounted rate for UChicago guests.


The Hilton/UChicago shuttle will drop you off and pick you up after your visit less than a block from the Admissions Office.
