Hotel Accommodations

Hotel Accommodations

The Office of University Events and Ceremonies has secured discounted rates on a select number of rooms at three downtown Chicago hotels through May 23, 2019. We encourage you to solidify your travel and hotel accommodations as soon as possible, as room blocks traditionally sell out quickly. The University of Chicago does not endorse any of these properties, but rather offers guests attending Convocation and other related activities the opportunity to reserve a hotel room as a courtesy at a discounted rate.

If the room blocks are full, you are welcome to inquire if there are vacancies outside of the University room block, but do note that regular hotel pricing will apply. As an alternative, there are a variety of hotels within walking distance to the three designated hotels. All guests, no matter their point of origin, are welcome to ride the Convocation Shuttle, free of charge, to and from campus from the University of Chicago Gleacher Center (near the InterContinental Chicago), The Blackstone, and Hyatt Regency McCormick Place.
