Local Business Discounts

Student Government, in partnership with UChicago Local and Commercial Real Estate Operations, has worked to secure discounts at local restaurants and other businesses to make sure students are paying less for their preferred goods and services. We are always actively seeking out new discounts and would love to hear input from students on the businesses they’d like added to this list.

If you are a local business owner interested in participating in the discount program, contact us! If you are a local business owner and would like to increase your engagement with the University of Chicago or Medical Center, please contact UChicago Local.

At any one of the businesses below, show your server or cashier your UCID and ask for the UChicago student discount! Search for discounts using the map or table. You can also use the ctrl + F feature to search for a specific business.
