Special Collections Change Location

Beginning July 29th, we will be closed for an hour lunch break from 12p-1p every day

Current UChicago students, faculty, and staff may book seats in the Hanna Holborn Gray Special Collections Research Center reading room to consult rare books, manuscripts, or university archives.  

Appointments are not required, but are recommended to guarantee a seat.

The Reading Room Hours:

9a-4:45p (M, T, TH, F)

10a-4:45 (W) 

If reservations are full, you may add your name to the Reading Room Seats Waitlist.  A Special Collections staff member will contact you if a seat opens up.
