Your University of Chicago Student ID (UCID) is now your UChicago Arts Pass—it provides free or discounted admission to over 60 theater, music, dance, visual art, and cultural institutions throughout Chicago. From Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre’s innovative genre fusions to the thrilling arias of the Lyric Opera, this city teems with artistic excellence. Thanks to our special partnerships with some of the best cultural institutions Chicago has to offer, the Arts Pass is your gateway to a world of riveting performances, exhibitions, and more. Just use your UCID to:
- Peruse an exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago or Museum of Contemporary Art for free.
- Enjoy discounted student tickets to nationally renowned theaters such as the Goodman, Steppenwolf, or Lookingglass Theater Company, or check out the avant-garde offerings of under-the-radar companies like Remy Bumpo.
- Catch an event without skipping out on study time by keeping your arts activities close to home--attend free performances at Court Theatre and University of Chicago Presents, or take dance classes at the Hyde Park School of Dance at a special reduced rate.
- Relish the benefits of student membership at the Smart Museum, Oriental Institute, Renaissance Society, and Hyde Park Art Center.
Arts Pass also organizes multiple group outings per quarter (transportation included), as well as a study event series during Reading Week, and we are constantly forging new partnerships with organizations across the city.
