University of Chicago Humanities Division

1115 East 58th Street, Chicago, IL 60637

Since the founding of the University of Chicago in 1892, the departments of the Division of the Humanities at Chicago have set an international standard for humanistic inquiry. The Division’s faculty consistently produces pioneering research in the study of language, literature, and culture. Their books and articles define how whole generations of readers and thinkers, in the academy and out, analyze human culture and moral life while their many journals disseminate Chicago ideals of hard-hitting, spirited intellectual inquiry to scholarly communities around the globe. Students live in apartments in Hyde Park most of the time but also have many housing options north at apartments in the South Loop and Loop.
