Housing & Residence Life

A Vibrant Residential Community

Our residence halls are home to 48 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.

University & Campus Opportunities

UChicago is a robust and enriching community. In addition to College programming, undergraduates have access to a wide array of University programs, resources, and activities. It is part of UChicago's commitment to the intellectual, personal, and professional success of every student.

Diversity & Inclusion

At UChicago, the more voices we have around the table, the better intellectual inquiry and discovery work. Not only is our undergraduate community proudly comprised of students of all backgrounds, walks of life, and geographic locations, but we also have numerous organizations and resources committed to inclusion and belonging.
