DSSG provides optional housing in downtown Chicago for Fellows at the University Center. The program has to pre-pay for housing so a limited number of spots are available. We will do our best to accommodate fellows that indicate they would like housing during the application process.  The housing has an apartment- style layout where Fellows will have individual rooms and share kitchen and common spaces with other members of the program. If you choose to take this housing, the cost of housing will be deducted from your stipend.  We are not able to help find summer housing in Chicago for fellows that do not choose housing at the University Center.
