CIR Campus Days
Because most University staff continue to work remotely through Spring quarter, and many campus buildings remain closed to visitors as part of the University's continued effort to reduce density on campus, this year's campus days will be virtual. For information on the University’s response to COVID, please go to goforward.uchicago.edu.
