Outcomes in Graduate Education: from Condensed Matter to Biological Physics

Map and Directions

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. 

Renormalization Group Tutorial Gordon Center 301 (Friday 5 October): The Friday tutorial will be in the Gordon Center for Integrative Science (GCIS) at 929 E. 57th St. in Room 301/ 303. Go right (south) on Ellis Ave to 57th Street. Cross the street and head right (west) on 57th Street, proceeding 1/2 block to the CIS building main entrances on left. Enter the west wing entrance, take the elevator to the 3rd floor. CIS W301/303 is immediately to your left. For a pseudo-aerial version of the building location, see http://jfi.uchicago.edu/events/images/CIS-Directions2.jpg

Symposium Day 1 Kent 107 (Saturday 6 October): On Saturday the symposium will be held in Kent Chemical Laboratory at 1020 E. 58th St. in room 107. The main entrace to Kent is located inside the main quandrangle (quad) of campus. If coming from the north, you can enter the main quad off of Ellis Ave. on a sidewalk just south of Jones (note: 58th St. does not go through Ellis Ave).

If coming from the east you can access the main quad from 58th St. at University and Kent will be on the North-West side of the quad.

Symposium Day 2 Kersten 106 (Sunday 7 October): On Sunday the symposium will be held in Kersten Physics Teaching Center (KPTC) on 5720 S. Ellis Ave. in room 106. Kersten can be accessed on 57th St. just west of S. Ellis Ave.
