Maps and Directions

Chicago Skyline

Flying to Chicago:

Chicago has two airports, Midway and O'Hare. Midway Airport is located closer to the University of Chicago and is more convenient to fly into. From either airport, the fastest way to get to downtown or the university is by taxi. If you are traveling directly to the symposium from the airport, the Omega Shuttle Service is an alternative option.
