don't say that uchicago is in a bad part of chicago before living here.
hyde park does have a lot to offer the people that are willing to look for it.

the neighborhood of hyde park is not built around the existence of the university. also, the community has many reasons for disliking the university: pompous a******s trying to take over the entire community without regard to the other people that live in the area.

(i am not including you in this group. just saying that people need to experience it first before making general statements about the area)

Yeah the place is really big. The two libraries are a garden across from each other, and the rose garden and chan centre are about a block from there. The classrooms are generally in one area, except the engineering and life sciences areas are farther off from the centre.

UChicago's architecture was directly copied from Cambridge and Oxford.

I think Yale and Princeton in second has two of the nicest college campuses in the U.S.

And it shows. It looks so out of place and foreign in the neighborhood. especially since the school and buildings are not as old as the architecture suggests.

Well I won't go there untill next year so I guess I will be able to judge on it's surroundings then. On the other hand, I didn't meant that hyde park didn't have anything to offer, it is just that the University IS in a less safe neighborhood, I've been told that by everyone I know there..

As I. It seems that the college needs a history and have been established for sometime for buildings to look like that.

I also love that very English strong red brick. Beautiful.

One of my favorite college buildings, the Gehry designed Stata Center at MIT
