Chicago Weekly is an American alternative weekly based in Hyde Park on the of South Side of Chicago, established in 1995. Operated by students as the independent voice of the University of Chicago, it is published every Wednesday during the academic year and also publishes articles to its website.
Known as Chicago Weekly News until closing operations in the winter of 2002, a newly branded Chicago Weekly resumed operations in 2003, as a result of a co-publishing partnership with university alumni-founded Newcity. Under this new partnership, a copy of Newcity would come inserted in the middle of each Chicago Weekly issue.
The paper promotes arts and culture on the South Side of Chicago through coverage and criticism, and follows South Side news stories that are ignored by mainstream media. It includes feature-length narrative journalism, essays, and a weekly calendar of cultural events.
Special Issues 
The Chicago Weekly has held an annual showcase issue of the South Side's various neighborhoods called Best of the South Side. The issue is designed to raise awareness among students of what the South Side has to offer.
Each Spring, the "Weekly" releases a housing guide. The issue is aimed at students from the University of Chicago, as they move across Hyde Park and the city of Chicago as a whole. Included are pieces on renter's rights and insurance, as well as profiles of local leasing agencies, and varied reflections on life on the South Side.
