Transportation & Parking

If you’re flying to Chicago: Midway airport (MDW) is smaller and closer to the University of Chicago campus. International travelers have no choice but to fly to O’Hare airport (ORD).

Once in Chicago, we suggest you use public transportation or ride sharing services. Parking on campus can be challenging.



The University of Chicago has compiled a list of hotels that are easily accessible from the campus. Chicago offers plenty of housing options, including a few Hostels and B&B.



Speakers are all invited to lunch. Lunches will be served at the Quadrangle Club, on the University of Chicago campus.

As of September 13, a limited number of lunch tickets are still available for sale ($36/lunch), and attendees are welcome to join. Email to purchase your lunch ticket. A list of nearby lunch options will be provided on site.
