Venue

All conference events will be held at the Palmer House, A Hilton Hotel. The venue is a classic reborn, established nearly 150 years ago and boasting a colorful history deeply intertwined with the city of Chicago. Recently renovated with modern amenities, the Palmer House offers a splendid backdrop to the stimulating discussions of a Model UN conference, and we are pleased to return to this historic setting for our twenty-ninth year.

The hotel is in the heart of downtown Chicago, at 17 East Monroe Street, Chicago, Illinois 60603. It is conveniently situated near many dining options and attractions, and less than an hour from the city’s major airports at O’Hare and Midway.

MUNUC has arranged for these special room rates at the Palmer House Hilton, the conference hotel. Please make room requests through MUNUC via the AdvisorWeb portal. Room rates are as follows, and do not include taxes.

MUNUC will refund delegate fees in the case of cancellation up until December 16. Refunds are not applicable for deposit fees or the school registration fee.

Financial Aid

MUNUC believes that cost should be not a barrier to educational opportunity, and is pleased to offer need-based aid to schools and individual delegates, in the form of fee waivers and reimbursements for travel and hotel costs.

We encourage schools for whom the cost of attending MUNUC may be prohibitive to fill out a financial aid estimate form, in order to get a better sense of how much assistance we would be able to provide. Your school does not need to register for MUNUC first to submit this form.

Please email completed documents to cfo@munuc.org. Applications are due October 28, 2016.

  • Access the financial aid application package here.
  • Access the financial aid estimate form here. This is for planning purposes only and you will still need to fill out the full application.
