Student Resources

Community Safety

The University is committed to working with the community and the Chicago Police Department to prevent crime and improve public safety in our community. The University of Chicago Police Department has approximately 100 professionally trained officers with full police powers to serve University students, faculty, staff, and community members. In addition, the University partners with the City of Chicago as well as neighborhood organizations to improve transportation and other aspects of community life.

We encourage students to take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the University of Chicago Community Safety FAQs and Safety Resources.

Career Development

The Professional Development team strives to provide career services and additional resources for our current students and alumni. We host events, workshops, seminars, and webinars focusing on important skills like networking, interviewing, resume writing, and negotiating. We also offer lectures that expand beyond the classroom and dive deep into diverse subjects. More information can be found on our Professional Student Experience page.

Disability Services

To ensure the intellectual richness of research and education, the University of Chicago seeks to provide an environment conducive to learning, teaching, working, and conducting research that values the diversity of its community. The University strives to be supportive of the academic, personal and work-related needs of each individual and is committed to facilitating the full participation of students with a disability in the life of the University.

Student Disability Services works to provide resources, support and accommodations for all students with disabilities and works to remove physical and attitudinal barriers, which may prevent their full participation in the University community.

Noncredit learners do not qualify for financial aid. For more information about non-credit programs, please visit our FAQ.

International Affairs

The Office of International Affairs is dedicated to enhancing a vibrant international community and to fostering cross-cultural experience. They welcome, support and strengthen diversity through advocacy and holistic service.

Libraries

As a private institution, the University of Chicago Library is dedicated to serving the research and teaching needs of our faculty and students, as well as the larger University community of alumni and staff. Beyond serving the University, we also recognize that we are a destination for scholars from around the world and strive to provide access to our collections to those with a legitimate research need. If your research leads you to our collections, we will do our best to provide access whenever possible.

We expect all users to abide by the policies and principles expressed in the Library's statement of User Rights and Responsibilities for Creating and Sustaining a Scholarly Environment. We are committed to providing access to both our physical and electronic resources to users with disabilities; for more information see Services for Users with Disabilities.
