Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House, year unknown. (Although maybe the cars are a hint?)
"The Robie House, with its dramatically cantilevered roof and strong horizontal lines, is one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s classic Prairie Style residences. The house, designed in 1906, is in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood."
Right on campus at 58th and Woodlawn!

good—and—gone: Campus in the afternoon - Hyde Park, Feb 2014
Do you live in the dorms, or off-campus? While all first-years are in housing, some students choose to move into apartments in the neighborhood afterwards: the Toolshed, the Shtetl, the Unit, the Little H, the Jericho, the Mansion, the Pepperland, the Dynasty, the Tree House and the Aquarium are all names for UChicago digs. Read more here.
Last night it was Alper House vs. Crown House at the Chairman’s Cup Broomball match on the Midway Plaisance ice rink.
The match, only an exhibition game, is in honor of the two men who gave those houses their names: Chairman of the Board of Trustees Andrew Alper, AB’80, MBA’81, and James Crown, who was chairman before Alper and remains a member of the Board.

Hyde Park Parakeets
Yes, they are a real thing! They have been spotted on campus at 54th St. and Kimbark Ave.
Brrr. As we enjoy snowy Hyde Park (so much snow!), here’s a video to remind us all of what life is like in the summer: UChicago interns explore Valois, 57th St Books, the Med, the Point and many other magical things in the sun…
Done with my first quarter of college at UChicago! Celebrating by posting a bunch of pictures of campus I’ve taken so far
We love watching the campus transform!
