Graduate Tour Schedule

Currently suspended as the office is closed to visitors indefinitely.

Driving Directions

The fastest way to get to campus from downtown Chicago is usually by Lake Shore Drive.

From Lake Shore Drive, exit at 57th Drive (the Museum of Science and Industry). Go west and curve around the museum. Take the fourth right onto the Midway Plaisance and go west to the campus.

Another option is the Dan Ryan Expressway (I-94).

From the Dan Ryan Expressway, exit at Garfield Blvd. (55th St.) and drive east, following the signs for 55th Street through Washington Park. Once you cross over Cottage Grove Avenue, the campus is on your right.

Parking

Parking on campus can be difficult. Please allow adequate travel time from the recommended parking lots to the Graduate Admissions Office.

Campus North Parking Lot: This parking lot is the most convenient and is located at 55th Street and Ellis Avenue, less than half a mile from our office. Information on parking rates can be found here.

Community Parking Lot: There is a free parking lot located at 60th Street and Stony Island Avenue. Please note that this parking lot is located approximately 1 mile from campus (a 20-minute walk). This lot is also the official lot for parking large buses.

Street parking: Street parking is free around campus, but finding an available spot can be tricky. We recommend that you instead park in one of the university’s parking lots or make use of one of the public transportation options listed below.

Public Transit

Bus

There are several CTA buses that serve the University of Chicago campus. The bus fare is $2.25.

#6 Jackson Park Express: Take the #6 bus southbound towards 79th/South Shore, alighting at S Hyde Park and 55th Street. Cross 55th street to take the #55 bus towards Midway Orange Line, exiting at 55th Street and Ellis. Turn left onto South Ellis Avenue; our building is located at the intersection of S Ellis Avenue and 58th Street.

#2 Hyde Park Express: This bus travels directly from Navy Pier to Hyde Park. However, it operates only in the mornings (southbound from 6:55 am to 9:20 am) and evenings (northbound from 3:40 pm to 6:05 pm). Take the southbound bus towards Cottage Grove/60th and alight at 60th Street and Ellis. Head northbound on South Ellis Avenue, crossing the Midway Plaisance before reaching our office at the corner of 58th Street and Ellis, on your left-hand side.

#4 Cottage Grove: Take the #4 bus southbound towards 115th Street, alighting at Cottage Grove and 58th Street. Turn left onto East 58th Street before reaching our office at the corner of 58th Street and Ellis, on your left-hand side.

Elevated Train

The CTA’s Green and Red Lines run close to campus. When traveling on either line, exit at the Garfield stop. When you exit the train station, cross the street to take the 55 bus towards the Museum of Science and Industry. Exit at 55th Street and Ellis and turn left onto South Ellis Avenue. Our building is located at the intersection of S Ellis Avenue and 58th Street.

A single-ride train ticket costs $2.25.

Metra

The Metra Electric District Line also runs near campus. From downtown, take this line towards Blue Island and alight at the 55th-56th-57th street Metra stop. You can then either walk to our building (about a mile) or take the #55 bus to 55th Street and Ellis. The Metra train fare is $3.75.
