Policy for non-Erikson-affiliated visitors

Erikson Institute is a private building, but we are open to current students, staff, and faculty members at higher education institutions. Please contact us at (312) 893-7210 to arrange your visit! On the day of your visit, please bring your community college, college, or graduate school ID card.

If you are here for a professional development event or meeting, you are welcome to utilize the library’s computers, databases, and assorted materials. We are unable to extend borrowing privileges to users who are not Erikson staff, faculty, students, or alumni.
