Venue

All conference events will be held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. The venue is truly in the center of downtown Chicago, built on the Chicago River, facing the Magnificent Mile, and neighboring Millennium Park. With its modern amenities, the Hyatt Regency offers a contemporary and functional space to facilitate the stimulating discussions of a Model UN conference, and we are excited to bring MUNUC to the Hyatt this year.

The hotel is in the heart of downtown Chicago, at 151 E Upper Wacker Dr, Chicago, IL 60601. It is conveniently situated near many dining options and attractions, and less than an hour from the city’s major airports at O’Hare and Midway.

MUNUC has arranged for these special room rates at the Hyatt Regency, the conference hotel. We are requiring all delegations to stay at the Hyatt, unless by petition. Room requests will be made using the Hyatt registration link sent via email upon your MUNUC registration.

Please note “Room Type” refers to the number of individuals in each room. A Quadruple Room is 2 beds meant to sleep 4 people. The Hyatt is unable to place cots in rooms for extra sleeping space. Room rates are as follows, and do not include taxes.

ROOM TYPE RATE PER NIGHT
Single TBD
Double TBD
Triple TBD
Quadruple $139
Single Suite TBD
Double Suite TBD

Financial Aid

MUNUC believes that cost should not be a barrier to educational opportunity, and is pleased to offer need-based financial aid to schools and individual delegates.

If the cost of attending MUNUC will be prohibitive for your delegation, we encourage you to fill out a financial aid estimate form, in order to get a better sense of how much assistance we would be able to provide. Your school does not need to register for MUNUC first to submit this form.

The expected costs of MUNUC include, but are not limited to, a school registration fee, individual delegate fees, travel arrangements, hotel expenses, and food for the weekend. We are able to offer financial aid in the form of school registration and/or individual delegate fee waivers, hotel vouchers, and travel reimbursements. Aid can be offered to entire delegations or to individual students. In the case of individual students, aid will be given to the school in the name of the student.

There are two separate portions of to our financial aid process: a school information form, and a student information form. Instructions can be found on the first sheet of the forms – advisors should complete the school information form and distribute the student information forms to students applying for financial aid.

In order to ensure that your financial aid decision gets back to you as soon as possible, please email completed documents to financialaid@munuc.org.  Applications are due October 22, 2018, and financial aid decisions will be returned to schools by November 3.

Payment & Refunds

All payments must be made by wire, credit card, or check; we do not accept cash payments. For credit card and wire payments, please inquire at cfo@munuc.org. Checks should be made out to  “Model United Nations of the University of Chicago.”

Send payments to the following address:

United States of America

MUNUC will refund delegate fees in the case of cancellation up until December 14. Refunds are not applicable for deposit fees or the school registration fee.
