Housing & Residence Life

A Vibrant Residential Community

Our residence halls are home to 39 Houses, communities of affiliated faculty, staff, and students who live, learn, eat, debate, and have fun together. These halls are important social and intellectual outlets where spontaneous conversation and structured programming enrich the academic pursuits of students and faculty alike. Traditions unique to each House and hall foster fellowship and pride among residents and forge connections between current students and House alumni.

Our Houses are far more than places to live at UChicago—they are places to thrive.

Study Abroad
