Be Part of Our Community

We are excited to welcome your student to campus, and are just as thrilled to welcome you to a network of UChicago Hillel parents who have a wealth of experience on supporting a student at UChicago.


Connect with Hillel

As parents, you too are part of one of the most vibrant Jewish college communities. We are here to support you in any way we can.  Please use us as a resource for questions, concerns, and more. Our Hillel supports more than 800 undergraduate students (15% of the undergraduate population) through our student leadership board, engagement interns, and about a dozen student-led groups. Staff meet with students to engage them in the community, empower them as leaders, and talk about what they want to experience on campus. We're excited to share these moments with you.



Our Newsletter shares program updates, quarterly news, and lets you know about important happenings at Hillel and on campus.

Facebook Group

Stay in touch with us and other UChicago parents in the “UChicago Hillel Parents” Facebook group.

Family Update

Is there a celebration or a sorrow in your family or community that we should know about so we can best support your student?

Please let us know.
