UChicago is located south of downtown Chicago in the vibrant neighborhood of Hyde Park. If this is your first time in Chicago, we encourage you to explore both our neighborhood and all our amazing city has to offer. While here, you can choose to stay in Hyde Park or downtown, and, to make your choice easier, we have recommended hotels in both locations.
If you're staying in Hyde Park, the Hyatt Place Chicago South offers a comfortable stay close to campus. Located off of 53rd Street, a major neighborhood thoroughfare filled with shops, galleries, and restaurants, the Hyatt Place offers a convenient shuttle service within Hyde Park as well as easy access to public transportation routes into downtown Chicago.
The hotel is only a 15-minute bus ride or 25-minute walk from campus, and is also within walking distance of Promontory Point, a jutting peninsula beloved by University students for its views of the city; Jackson Park, home of the coming Obama Presidential Center and former home of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition; and the Museum of Science and Industry.
On the other hand, if you and your family plan to stay downtown while visiting the University of Chicago, we encourage you to explore rooming 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 is located on Michigan Avenue, in walking distance from Millennium Park, shopping on State Street and the Magnificent Mile, Museum Campus (including Adler Planetarium, the Art Institute, the Field Museum, and Shedd Aquarium), and dozens of other attractions and restaurant options.
For every UChicago guest who stays at the Hilton Chicago, the hotel will make a donation to the University of Chicago’s Odyssey Scholarship program. The Odyssey Scholarship program provides low-income and first-generation UChicago students with financial, academic, social, and career support that enriches the benefits of a UChicago education.
Registration is quick and easy and is offered at a discounted rate for UChicago guests.
