Getting Around

2019 Ivy Plus EEO Annual Meeting




  • Biking: Many opportunities exist in Hyde Park and Chicago for anyone interested in biking. Chicago has more than 170 miles of on-street protected, buffered, and shared bike lanes. Divvy, the city of Chicago’s bike share program, allows visitors to purchase daily rentals and take a bike out from any station and return it to any other station in the city.
  • Walking: If you have time, please refer to this self-guided tour and enjoy walking around campus.
  • Public Transportation: The CTA trains—collectively known as the “L“—are among the easiest and most common ways to navigate the city of Chicago. The lines are distinguished by color, and all of them run through the Loop, where they meet other lines in the heart of Chicago for easy transfers. A series of CTA buses connect Hyde Park and the University of Chicago to the train lines, Midway Airport, and downtown.
  • Uber / Lyft:  Ride-sharing is generally available around campus.

Please use this interactive map to learn more about getting around campus.



The University of Chicago welcomes visitors with disabilities and works collaboratively to provide accommodations appropriate to need and circumstance.  Please contact Scott or Mitchell at if you need an accommodation during your visit.
