As a member of the UChicago community, parents are an important partner in supporting student development and academic achievement. This website is designed to serve as a hub for parents, to answer questions you may have and to offer opportunities for you to build your own UChicago experience. While much of the information on this site is geared toward parents of undergraduate students, parents of graduate students will find information and resources here as well.  If you cannot find what you are looking for or have other questions, please feel free to contact us anytime.
