Dissertation Office

Ask the Dissertation Office if you have questions or would like assistance. Send an email or leave a telephone message anytime. Live Chat hours are 2pm-4pm Monday-Friday.

Fourth Week: Let us know this week if you still have questions about formatting or submitting your dissertation. There is still time to request a draft review.

The Dissertation Office provides information on the University's dissertation policies. We help students understand dissertation formatting and publication requirements, and we assist with the submission process. We support graduate program administrators as they manage dissertation submissions and departmental approval, and we audit completed dissertation submissions to ensure they meet University requirements. We coordinate dissertation publishing and embargoes with ProQuest and with Knowledge@UChicago. Our office is Room 100B on the first floor of Regenstein Library, but for the time being we are working remotely, and our services will continue online.
