New Space for Computer Science Department

The Department of Computer Science moved into its new home on the second and third floors of the renovated John Crerar Library in August 2018. This state-of-the-art academic space includes closed and open offices, conference rooms, spaces for experimental research, graduate student offices and a large gathering area for departmental seminars, workshops and distinguished speaker lectures. 

New Space for Computer Science Department

In early 2019, a new space will open on the first floor of the Crerar Library to support design, GIS, gaming and media arts. The space will be operated by UChicago CS, the Humanities Division, UChicago Arts, and the UChicago Library. The first floor’s Computer Science Instructional Laboratory will also expand to accommodate growing student interest and demand for Computer Science course offerings.

The new Crerar Library space helps fulfill the University’s ambition of expanding and enhancing the Computer Science Department and creating opportunities for new and creative ways to engage and foster collaboration across different fields of research.
