Undergraduate housing at UChicago is provided through the University House System. Students in the House System belong to a campus community that crackles with intellectual energy. You need only read the bulletin boards in our residential Houses, stop by a study break, hang out in a House Lounge, or eavesdrop on conversations at House Tables in a dining commons to understand what we mean.
In their Houses students learn about the College’s academic and cultural norms and interact with a diverse group of peers, upperclass students, Resident Heads, and faculty members. At UChicago we believe that this setting is the best possible one for supporting students in their transition to College life, in the establishment of habits and ideals of study, the discovery and appreciation of different viewpoints, and the cultivation of adult social and academic skills.
Each of the College Houses brings together students with different backgrounds, interests, and areas of study to share a common space and a common spirit. The presence and participation of upperclass students in each House provides academic and social support for new students as they transition to the College, and leadership opportunities for advanced students as they develop and prepare for future leadership roles and careers.
Moving Out Instructions
All residence halls close at 3:00pm on Saturday, June 15. All residents are expected to be moved out and checked out by that time - unless graduating or on a late departure exception list because they are working for special events at convocation.
Residents of every residence hall need to follow these move out instructions.
Residents of Booth-Phoenix have an additional move-out memo.
Graduating seniors need to read both the moving out instructions, as well as the memo to graduating seniors.
