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 to all registered schools in mid-August.
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.

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: an advisor information form, and a two-part delegate information form. Instructions can be found on both forms. Advisors should complete the school information form and distribute the delegate information forms to students applying for financial aid, who should then complete part 1 of the form. For students applying for financial aid without their school, both parts of the delegate information form are required, but you will not need to submit an advisor information form.
