B. Transportation to the University of Chicago from O'Hare International Airport

By Taxi Cab

We strongly suggest that you take a taxi cab to campus as the distance from O'Hare to the University of Chicago is quite substantial. The best option would be to gather a small group and share a cab to campus. The cost of a cab should be about $75.00.

By Shuttle

If you would like to arrange for a seat on a shuttle, Airport Express has small busses that run from the airport to campus. You must book for a seat on the shuttle in advance for them to deliver you to the South Campus Residence Hall, and you will obtain information on where and when to find the bus from Airport Express.

By Public Transportation

To reach the University of Chicago from O'Hare International Airport by public transportation, take the "Blue Line" subway to downtown Chicago (also known as the "Loop"). Get off at the Clark/Lake stop, walk one block south to Randolph Street and then, walk four blocks east to the Randolph St. Metra Station. Take the Metra Electric southbound until you get to the 60th St. stop. Walk west, toward campus, along the length of the Midway Plaisance until you reach Ellis Ave. At Ellis Ave., turn left, past 60th St. to reach South Campus Residence Hall. (N.B.: Do not take the "Red" or "Green" line trains south of downtown).

C. Checking in at South Campus Residence Hall

Upon arrival you'll need to check in at the Dorm. You will be given a photo ID which is your key to the dormitory, libraries, your room, and breakfast each morning (beginning July 7). The photo ID you received from the South Campus Residence may be used to enter the library. While in the library you may access the electronic resources. You will also be given a messenger bag with the schedule, printed syllabi, and other materials, including a campus map.
