Resources and Services

Students who attend Chicago Harris join a community of scholars responsible for pioneering the field of sociology, discovering the structure of DNA, and calculating the speed of light.  UChicago is a community of scholars comprised of more than 80 Nobel laureates, one that leads the nation in Fulbright-Hays fellowships.  

The path of a graduate student will be dotted with achievements and successes, challenges and struggles.  However, there is an entire campus and community here to support Harris students.  Below is a compilation of University Resources.

Computing

Much of the work at Harris requires a computer, including statistical software, Microsoft Excel, and Stata. However, it is not  necessary that students purchase a computer. The Harris School computing center has a bank of PCs with all necessary software programs. There is also a remote access Windows server that can be used to access Stata, office applications, and GIS software.

For students who would like to purchase a new computer, the University of Chicago’s TechStore has a number of recommended Dell and Apple bundles that can be purchased at a discount. CNet ID and password is necessary to log in.
