  • Rockefeller is a beautiful building which hosts one of the largest carillons in the world. The tower which hosts the carillon is the tallest on the uchicago campus, and tours to see the view from the top (along with the carillon bells and the keyboard) run leave from inside the front doors at 11:30 am or 4:30 pm on weekdays and 12:15 pm on Sundays. The rest of the chapel is well worth a visit as well!
  • Beautiful structure holding fascinating events and interviews.
  • On a campus overflowing with Gothic buildings, this one stands out. Tower tours on weekdays.
  • A very pretty space. Carillon concerts sometimes, I believe.
  • Absolutely gorgeous
