Booking Your Travel


When booking your flights, please be sure to select flights that comply with the University of Chicago’s airfare reimbursement policy. You may claim reimbursement for the cost of your airfare only after your dates of travel. If incurring these costs will present a financial hardship, please contact us at for assistance.



For students attending our official visit on Feb 28th-Mar 1st, the department will book a room for you at a local Hyde Park hotel. Details of your hotel stay will be provided with your final schedule.

Students visiting the department at another time should coordinate with their faculty sponsor(s).


Ground Transportation to and From the Airport and Other expenses

The department will reimburse visitors for meals (not including alcohol) and reasonable incidental costs, such as ground transportation to and from the airport and from department sponsored events. If you are unsure about whether a cost will be reimbursed, please contact us at for assistance prior to incurring such cost.  

Please use a ride share, taxi service, bus, or train (CTA or Metra) for transport.

Retain your receipts for reimbursements.
