How do I register?

Register here!

Can I attend if I do not pre-register?

We can accept walk-in attendees if space is still available, but advance registration is highly encouraged. Registering before the deadline helps us to better accommodate you, reserves your space, and gives us a more accurate idea of how many meals to order.

Please note: any special meal requests must be made before the final registration deadline. Our ability to honor on-site special requests is very limited.

Can I bring my family?

Children are welcome to attend Saturday activities at the Law School and the Sunday boat tour. The Picnic Lunch on Saturday will include a face painter as well as additional games and activities.

All other events are recommended for adults only. Please contact Jamie Hillner at jhillner@uchicago.edu with any questions.

 

Are there childcare options available?

If you are bringing your family for a weekend of fun in Chicago, child care services are available from a number of local providers, including American Child Care. More information can be found at www.americanchildcare.com. For questions, please call (312) 644-7300 or email at travelnanni@gmail.com.

The University does not endorse or assume liability for any outside child-care service provider.
