Chicago, IL 60637

July 1-2, 2017

For additional travel information, visit these resources:

By Taxi, Uber, Lyft, or Airport Shuttle

Taxi fare from:

  • Midway Airport to campus is approximately $25–$35
  • O’Hare Airport to campus is approximately $50–$70
  • Downtown to campus is approximately $15–$25.

Taxis are readily available at both airports. If you need to request a taxi, please keep the following information handy:

  • Checker Cab: 312.243.2537 or text your full name and pickup address to 312-520-3029.

If you need a taxi to pick you up from the Law School, you must call in advance. You should give them the Law School address (1111 East 60th Street).

You can also use the Uber app or Lyft app to request a ride to and from the Law School and other locations throughout Chicago.

Airport Shuttle: If you are downtown, you can easily get to the Law School by using public transportation; however, using public transportation to get to the Law School from either airport can be difficult as you will need to transfer modes of transport somewhere downtown. You may want to contact Omega Shuttle at 773-483-OMEGA (773-483-6634) or www.omegashuttle.com. Omega has designated stops at the University and around Hyde Park. Another option is Continental Airport Express at 888-2TheVan (888-284-3826) or www.airportexpress.com. If you plan to use one of these services, you should contact them before arriving in Chicago.

By Bus or Train

The Law School can be reached using the Chicago Transit Authority’s (CTA) public bus and train lines, as well as the Metra commuter train.

The base fare for a trip on a CTA train is $2.25 and a CTA bus is $2.00 with up to two transfers permitted within two hours for an additional $0.25. We recommend that you purchase and load money onto a Ventra card or pass (the CTA’s transit card) so that you can take advantage of the reduced prices for transfers. To learn more about how to use the CTA or to plan your trip, please visit www.transitchicago.com.

Fares for a one-way ticket on the Metra commuter train run from $3.75 to $8.00 depending on the time of day you plan to travel.

Using the CTA Bus and Train Lines

From O’Hare to Downtown:

  • Take the CTA Blue Line train from O’Hare (follow the signs in the airport) to downtown Chicago (approximately 60 minutes).
  • Get off the train at the Jackson stop.

  • Another convenient and cost-effective transportation option is to take the CTA Blue Line train from O’Hare to the Jackson stop and instead of transferring to the #2 or #6 bus as described below, take a taxi, Uber, or Lyft to the Law School.

Please ask the taxi driver to drop you off at the Law School (1111 East 60th Street, Hyde Park).

  • Once off the bus, walk north towards the Law School (you will be facing the back of the Law School and the parking lot).

Using the Metra Rail

From Downtown to Hyde Park:

  • Catch the Metra Electric District commuter train at the Millennium Station (151 N. Michigan Ave.), the Van Buren Street station (132 E. Van Buren Street), or the Museum Campus/11th Street station (Michigan Avenue at 11th Street).
  • Get off the train at the 55th/56th/57th Street or the 59th Street station and walk west towards the campus.

Hotels

If you are a prospective student, we encourage you to stay at either the Hyatt Place Chicago- South/University Medical Center (located right in Hyde Park) or the Hilton Chicago (located on Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago). Both the Hyatt Place and the Hilton Chicago have partnered with the University of Chicago to provide affordable and accessible rooms for our visitors.

Guests staying at the Hyatt Place Chicago-South/University Medical Center will have the added benefit of being only a short distance from the Law School.  The Hyatt also provides a complimentary shuttle service for guests to anywhere on the University’s campus. Use the University of Chicago-specific website to book your reservations.

Guests staying at the Hilton Chicago will receive a specialized University of Chicago welcome information packet and also receive complimentary shuttle service to and from the campus each day. The Hilton Chicago is also easily accessible from both airports by public transportation and shuttle service. Use the University of Chicago-specific website to book your reservations.

If you wish to stay at another hotel, there are many options at varying price points in Hyde Park and downtown Chicago and the University has negotiated rates with many of them. Learn more about these options for guests of the University.
