New University Of Chicago Dorms Include Space For The Hyde Park Community

Three sleek white towers at the University of Chicago are bringing the dormitory experience closer to the community. 

Designed by architect Jeanne Gang, the buildings range from 5 to 15 stories and will hold a total of 800 beds along with a large communal dining center. The space will also have a performance area and room for local retail and dining options. 

As with all the dorms at the University of Chicago, first year students will pay a little more than $9,000 a year to live there. 

All 800 beds are sold out and students will move in this coming weekend.
