If you are a parent/guardian considering Lab for your child, please see our Admissions webpages for details about that process. http://www.ucls.uchicago.edu/admissions/tour-our-campuses
Educators/researchers should submit visit requests at least two weeks in advance in order to make arrangements for appropriate campus tours. The Laboratory Schools have two campuses: an early childhood campus at Earl Shapiro Hall (ESH) that houses grades Nursery School –2 and the Historic Campus (HC) which is home to grades 3–12. Tours groups generally select one of the two campuses to visit over 60–90 minutes. This form includes a space to identify which of the two campuses you wish to visit.
Once your visit request form is received, a representative from Lab will contact you to confirm details of the visit, including timing and specific spaces. While we make an effort to accommodate as many visit requests as possible, there are days and times that generally cannot be accommodated (i.e. exam periods, school holidays, professional workdays, weekends, and evenings). Finally, all visitors to the Laboratory Schools are required to present a picture ID and to have their photograph taken by security before touring the campus.
PLEASE NOTE: The Laboratory Schools will be closed from November 21 through November 23, 2018 for the Thanksgiving Break, December 20, 2018 through January 4, 2019 for Winter Break, and March 20 through March 29, 2019 for Spring Break. During that time, we will not be scheduling visits or confirming requests for new visits. Visit requests made during these times will receive a response when we return.
