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. Students are housed in the same building as students participating in ACM’s Field Museum Semester.

Typically, two students share each studio apartment (similar in size to a standard dorm room). Each apartment features 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.
