Accommodations

All accommodations listed are within a short walking distance of campus. Don't forget to ask for the Northwestern University or student rate, and mention that you are visiting for the Northwestern University Department of Economics Prospective Graduate Visit Day. At many hotels you can get a room with two beds and share the cost with another prospective student.

In addition to these hotels, we can arrange for you to be hosted by, and stay with, one of our current graduate students. If you are interested in this, please e-mail our Graduate Program Coordinator, Mercedes Thomas.
