+ - COVID-19 Travel Concerns  - Vue53 is now offering a Travel Restriction Addendum. This addendum applies to any international applicant who might be unable to travel to the United States in time for our move-in date because of possible travel bans or VISA delays.

- After you apply, we would ask that you request to sign a Travel Restriction Addendum as an international applicant. Then, if you are unable to make it to the University of Chicago for the fall semester due to travel related restrictions or VISA delays, we would be able to defer the start date of your lease to January 1, 2022 for the spring semester instead. Please be aware that documentation of your inability to travel will be required and must be approved by the leasing office. We hope this might help ease any worries or concerns that you may have about signing a lease at Vue53 for the fall lease term as we continue to navigate COVID-19. *Restrictions apply.
