Contacting Your Student

If you wish to contact your child while he or she is in residence, please use one of the methods listed below to contact them directly. Please remember that, during the day or in the evening before curfew, your student may be in class, in the library, at the gym, or somewhere else on campus, and our residential staff will not be aware of your child’s exact whereabouts at all times. In the event of an emergency, our residential staff will track down your child as quickly as possible (see Emergencies below). The Summer Session Office handles administrative matters such as registration, but the office is not located in the dorm and cannot take mail or phone messages for students.

By Mail

Please address all mail and packages to:

(Your student's name)
Attn. Summer Conference—Summer Session
Campus North Residence Hall
5500 South University Avenue
Chicago, IL 60637

Please do not send any packages or other mail for students to the Summer Session Office.

By Telephone

Many students bring their own cell phones with them. We recommend that you check with your provider before your student arrives on campus to make sure that your service will work in this area. Please note that Campus North Residence Hall does not provide phones in student rooms.

By E-Mail

All students will create a University of Chicago e-mail address when they claim their CNet ID and password (how to do so is covered in the materials sent to students once their enrollment deposits are paid). It is the student’s responsibility to give his or her e-mail address to his or her parent(s) or guardian(s).
