Event FAQs

Some events have special registration requirements; please follow the specific instructions in each event description to register.

Registering by phone and mail: If you plan to pay by phone or mail, please call 800.955.0065 or the event contact person in advance so that your reservation is held for events that have a limited number of tickets. If we do not receive payment within a week of your call, your reservation will be removed from the list. You may also call Alex Cantero, AB'07, at 415.278.9265, and he can help figure out where payment should be mailed, or connect you to the proper person should you want to pay by phone.

Register online: You can register right here, at uchicagobayarea.org, as well as find full, up-to-date event details. Hover your mouse a tad higher and you'll find  a link to upcoming events. 

Questions? Reservations are not guaranteed until your payment has been received. Please call the Alumni Association at 800.955.0065 or the appropriate event contact person if you need confirmation regarding your registration.  

Refund requests: If you wish to request a refund for an event registration, you must do so in writing no fewer than five business days prior to the scheduled date of the event. Refund requests not meeting these criteria cannot be honored. Note that fees to ticketed events are nonrefundable unless there is a waiting list for the program and we are able to give your ticket to someone on the waiting list. Please send requests via e-mail to alumniclubs@uchicago.edu or fax to 415.671.6382, Attn: Alex Cantero.

Updates and cancellations: Events may be rescheduled, postponed, or canceled by the club due to low registration counts, weather, unavailability of volunteers/event hosts/speakers, or conflicts with the club’s policies.

Carpooling is a great way for us to facilitate a more environmentally conscious community. If you are interested in carpooling to an event, or offering a ride to other guests, please contact the event coordinator. Although we cannot guarantee a ride, we will do our best to arrange one.

Accessibility: If you are in need of special services or assistance at an event, please contact Alex Cantero, AB'07, at 415.278.9265 or cantero@uchicago.edu.
