Parents & Families

Welcome to the UChicago community of parents and families. As your student begins to make the transition into the College, we know that there will be a period of transition for you as well. As a parent or family member of a UChicago student, you are considered part of the extended UChicago community. We hope you will take advantage of the many opportunities we offer to engage with the faculty, staff, students, and alumni on campus and around the world.

Discover Chicago

One of the defining aspects of study at UChicago is its setting in the city of Chicago and the Hyde Park neighborhood. Here, opportunities to interact with the city’s cultural institutions, neighborhoods, and more are woven into student life. Chicago offers countless experiences—in every field imaginable—that connect learning on campus to the world outside the classroom.
