We recommend the use of the Trip Planner on the CTA website.

From the Airports

From the O’Hare airport, it’s about a 50-minute CTA Blue line train ride toward Forest Park to the UIC-Halsted stop. From there, take the #8 bus to Roosevelt and Halsted, or just walk south on Halsted to the venue at Halsted and Roosevelt (approx 15 minute walk).

From the Midway airport, it is about a 20-minute CTA Orange line ride toward downtown Chicago to the Roosevelt stop. Walk west to State and Roosevelt and take the #18 bus west to Roosevelt and Halsted.

Via Trains

The conference location is accessible via CTA trains. The nearest “el” train stop is the UIC-Halsted stop for the Blue line (15 minute walk), or the Roosevelt stop on Red/Orange, which is a short ride on the #18 bus to Halsted and Roosevelt. If you are coming in on Metra, we recommend taking a Lyft (a code will be emailed to registered attendees) from either Union Station or Ogilvie.

Driving and Parking

The UIC Forum is centrally located within the Chicagoland area, but please check your favorite app for day-of traffic conditions as nearby highway construction has made of mess of things. There is no free parking. Ample parking is available 2 blocks west of the Forum at UIC Parking Lot 5 at 1135 South Morgan Street, for $13 for 24 hours. The lot does not open until 8.
