Residence Life

At the University of Chicago, there are numerous opportunities to connect with fellow students where you live, dine, study, and relax. Residential commons and cafés, programs, and services are designed to make it easy for you to meet people and enjoy your time outside of the classroom.

As a College student, you develop relationships and enjoy a rich assortment of programming through Housing & Residence Life, which includes 38 Houses in 7 residential commons. Your house is a home base – a smaller community of friends and peers within the broader campus. 

Through UChicago Dining, all students can share meals with friends, faculty, and staff in dining halls and cafés across campus. Meal plans and Maroon Dollars can be used in both of the residential dining halls, twelve campus cafés, and in the Maroon Market (located at Bartlett) and Midway Market (located at the Renee Granville-Grossman Residential Commons). Information about managing food allergies, special diets and religious meals is available on the UChicago Dining website.

International House is a dynamic residence and program center for students and scholars from more than fifty countries who are affiliated with educational, professional, and cultural institutions throughout Chicago. The entire University community enjoys its many programs and events.
