UChicago Residence Hall Spotlight: South Campus

Our newest dorm is split into South Campus East and West. First-year students are placed into singles, doubles, or triples in one of 8 houses, each of which have their own traditions, personality, and common area. With the Arley D. Cathey Dining Commons, large courtyard, and short walk to the main campus, there is much to love about this dorm.
