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.

Emily Witte My time in Chicago in the ACM Newberry Library program was such a privilege. While living two blocks from the beach was certainly AWESOME, the best part was having access to all of the primary resources that the Newberry Library has to offer. With my own carrel to work at, I was able to work with the materials in depth and strengthen my research and writing skills immensely. In addition, the staffs at the library were welcoming and wonderful to work with. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything.
