For more than 125 years, the people and ideas of the University of Chicago have helped shape the world and how we understand it. Today the world comes to UChicago—to learn, collaborate, and take part in the vital conversations that happen here. Such a university demands a convening space suited to its stature as a global intellectual destination. The David Rubenstein Forum combines a variety of spaces, both formal and informal, large and small, calm and animated, focused and diffuse, scheduled and spontaneous. Its ten-story tower features vibrant and distinct “neighborhoods.” Its unique position on the Midway allows for expansive views toward the campus and surrounding communities as well as downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan and offers a strong visual connection between the university and the city, and it is an exquisite setting for hosting spectacular special events.
