How It Works

Have a student at one of America’s most academically rigorous institutions during its coldest time of the year? Warm their spirits with a care package from a loved one!

You Order

Utilizing our convenient, online services, you simply build and order your own custom care package option and specify to us the lucky recipient’s name and dormitory.

We Deliver

With our capable team of 50 UChicago students, we purchase, package, and hand deliver your selected items to your student’s specified dormitory. We hand package each of the items 8th through 9th week then deliver them throughout 10th week (just a few days before their finals!).

They Enjoy

After receiving an email from their dormitory’s staff that their care package has arrived, your student will be able to conveniently pick up and enjoy your small bundle of love.


Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting UChicago Winter Care Package orders. We only accept orders for packages 1st through 7th week of the UChicago winter quarter. If you believe this to be a mistake, please contact us!

Sorry Snowman
