Early Arrival Petition for HS Students

This form is only available for High School students under 18 years of age since they cannot check into a hotel room without a legal adult.

Visiting College Students and Current UChicago Students 18 years and older will need to find accommodation on their own.

By submitting this petition, I affirm that:

  • I am an international student who has found that airline flight schedules do not permit me to arrive on the Saturday morning of my scheduled Orientation weekend.
  • I will not make/have not made travel arrangements prior to receiving approval for early arrival from the Summer Session Office.
  • I understand that I may only request to move in on the Friday prior to my Orientation weekend; all requests to arrive prior to Friday will be rejected.
  • I understand that a $150 early arrival fee will be assessed. This charge will be added to the final Summer Session bill, and covers accommodations only (no meals or activities will be provided; the meal plan begins with Saturday dinner). After June 1, this fee increases to $200.

This form will be sent to summerhs@uchicago.edu upon submission. A decision will be emailed to both the student and parent at the addresses provided in the student application within 48 hours.
