Map & Directions

Hyde Park, a historical neighborhood located approximately six miles from downtown Chicago, is a place where people of all ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds can find a place for their spirits to soar, whether their niche is intellectual life, political action, the arts, sports, or social life.

You will soon find that the same spirit of inquiry at The University of Chicago (University) permeates Hyde Park with its many and diverse educational and religious institutions, its vibrant museums, and even its restaurants, coffee shops, and performance venues. Wherever you go, you will see people absorbed in a book or involved in a lively conversation – at the corner cafe, grocery store, or park.
