The Keller Center is located on the University of Chicago's historic campus in the vibrant neighborhood of Hyde Park–a diverse community on the southwest shore of Lake Michigan. The Keller Center is a few blocks from Hyde Park's 53rd street, a popular destination for dining, shopping, and entertainment. 

Harris Public Policy's new home, the Keller Center features a world-class design–setting the standard in sustainable design, amplifying the school's civic engagement, and empowering the next policy leaders.


Participants are responsible for making their own arrangements for accommodations. For those coming from out-of-town or wanting to stay in Hyde Park or downtown Chicago, there are numerous hotels including some that offer discounts for those attending UChicago programs.
