ABOUT CONFERENCE CHICAGO

Established in 2004, University Center of Chicago is the largest student housing community in downtown Chicago, housing over 1700 individuals and students during the academic year. In the summer, University Center transforms into a home away from home for Chicago interns and groups, as well as, short term hotel-style accommodations for guests visiting the city.

A full-service conference center was developed to support the university partners. It quickly transformed into a successful, independent entity for professional clients and is known today as Conference Chicago at University Center. Conference Chicago is a full-service conference facility that supports association and corporate segments equally alongside education and nonprofit clients.
