Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where will the presentations be held?

    Humanities Day events are held in the seminar rooms and lecture halls of the UChicago Hyde Park campus. Room assignments for the presentations will be available on the website in early October. The week of Humanities Day we will also email you a confirmation that lists the locations for your presentations. If you have any questions on the day of the event, please stop by Humanities Day Headquarters in Stuart Hall, on the Harper Quadrangle, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
  • Will tickets be sent to me? Where do I pick up my tickets?

    There are no printed tickets for Humanities Day presentations. A staff member with a list of registered participants will be at each location. Additional staff will be available the day of the event to answer questions and guide participants to various locations.
  • What does it mean when registration for a presentation is closed?

    To ensure that everybody who registers for a presentation gets a seat, we close registration when the room can't hold any more attendees. If you really want to see a presentation, we recommend stopping by that presentation's room before it begins—although we cannot guarantee that you will be seated, it may be a possibility at the last minute.
  • How can I find out about changes to the program?

    You can watch this website for updates to the program, including room changes and cancellations, or visit the Humanities Day Headquarters in the lobby of Stuart Hall (5835 South Greenwood Avenue) on the day of the event. Headquarters opens at 8:30 a.m.
  • Is there parking available?

    Yes. The Ellis Avenue Parking Garage is located on the southeast corner of 55th Street and Ellis Avenue at 5501 South Ellis Avenue. Street parking is also available throughout campus and Hyde Park.
  • What if I need special assistance to attend?
