Newberry Seminar: Research in the Humanities

Chicago, Illinois

Living arrangements

Students in the Newberry seminar live in an apartment building in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood and a few blocks walk from the Newberry Library.

Two students share each studio apartment (similar in size to a standard dorm room) with a kitchenette, bathroom and walk-in closet. The apartments are approximately 15' x 18' and are furnished with one or two chairs, tables, lamps, ovens, and compact refrigerators. Some apartments have Murphy beds; others have regular twin beds. It's an ideal location for young people living in the city.

Nicole Helregel The Newberry Seminar is a fantastic experience! It is a great preview of graduate school-style learning, and you gain a lot from being part of such a wonderful community. The Newberry's resources are truly unique, and everyone you meet is willing to help you with your project. I had a great time, and I would recommend it to anyone who is genuinely interested in humanities research.
