University of Chicago

The University of Chicago is a private research university based in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago serving approximately 5,500 undergraduate students and 3,200 graduate students. Eighty-nine Nobel Prize winners either attended the University of Chicago or worked at the school. One fun foodie fact is that there are over ten different kinds of food trucks that make their way onto the University of Chicago’s campus to serve lunch.

“Several events of the 1893 World’s Fair took place on our campus.”
