Roosevelt University

The NAMLE conference will take place at Roosevelt University’s main campus at 430 South Michigan Avenue.  There are a wide range of accommodation options in downtown Chicago, though June is a busy time in the city and the American Library Assocaition conference immediately proceeds our event.  We encourage you to make accomodations at your soonest convenience.

The most affordable and convenient option available are dorm rooms right on campus at Roosevelt.

Dorm rooms will be available at Roosevelt University Saturday, June 24 thru Thursday, June 29 (check out Friday, June 30).
