Graduate Students

NOTE: All available spaces have now been taken.

Some of the graduate students from the Philosophy Department have agreed to host other graduate students visiting for the conference. With only a limited number of spaces available, these will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you do not mind sleeping on a sofa, a futon, or in someone’s guest room, then please contact Charles Todd at

International House, 1414 E. 59th Street (University of Chicago campus). Budget-minded travelers, those who want to be right in the middle of the action, or those who want the opportunity to mingle with a cross-section of Chicago’s graduate student body will appreciate the convenience and culture of I-House, as it’s colloquially known.

Downtown Chicago is easily reached by a 15-minute train ride from both the International House and the Ramada Inn, if you would like to visit the city.

If you are interested in staying in downtown Chicago, there are countless hotels in the area.  Please note that, due to the large number of events that take place at the University of Chicago and in the city, accommodation space may be limited, so plan to secure your lodging early.
