When visiting campus, it is always a good idea to begin thinking about your hotel choice early in your planning. For Family Weekend, many parents prefer to begin making their reservations sometime over the summer. To find hotels in the area, we encourage you to begin with the accommodations page on the University's visit site.
Many families choose to stay in the downtown area during Family Weekend to have access to restaurants and amenities in the area. Getting to Hyde Park is an easy cab ride away or it can be accessed by public transportation. You will find directions to campus on our Getting to Campus page. Please note that some hotels provide shuttles to campus. This service is provided by the hotels and not administered by the University or the College Programming Office. Please check with the staff at the hotels for more information.
If, during your visit, you realize that you have forgotten something, additional information about shops and restaurants in the area will be available in your check-in materials. If you have other questions about amenities in the area, feel free to contact us.
