Rockefeller Memorial Chapel is the spiritual and ceremonial center of the University of Chicago and a major performing arts producer, offering music, theatre, and visual arts events to citywide audiences. A leading venue for the choral arts, it is a prized event location for major speakers and international artists.

Rockefeller hosts major performing arts and academic events, and serves as the locus for University-wide gatherings and celebrations of many different kinds, including Convocations. The Chapel was built with a grandeur of scale and intent, and is used today in ways which play to its strengths: speaking to the nobility of the human capacity for awe and profound quest for meaning.

Rockefeller Chapel is part of Campus and Student Life.
