Chicago and Hyde Park
The architecture, the lake front, the restaurants, the art scene, the night life, the parks, the museums, and (most) of our sports teams are world class. The city of Chicago lives on a residential scale, with 77 neighborhoods, each with distinct cultures, attractions, and points of interest. Students take advantage of these attractions by using the city’s robust public transportation system which includes buses, the “L” (our elevated train system), and commuter train lines.
With so much to do, it’s no wonder that Chicago has been named the #1 large city in the U.S. four years in a row!
UChicago is located in the historic, residential neighborhood of Hyde Park, just 20 minutes south of downtown Chicago. This location provides students the best of both worlds: a diverse neighborhood with a college-town feel yet easy access to everything else going on in a world-class city. Hyde Park is also home to lifelong residents, beautiful tree-lined streets, many small shops and bookstores, and thriving culture. Students can engage with all the neighborhood has to offer, including museums, restaurants, the 57th Street Art Fair, and more.
