Traveling by Car

The Roosevelt University (Chicago Campus) is located at 430 S. Michigan Avenue (at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Congress Parkway). From other expressways turn onto the eastbound Eisenhower Expressway which becomes Congress Parkway. If you park in the Auditorium Garage across Congress Parkway from the university, you should stamp your ticket in the Roosevelt lobby to get a discount during weekdays. You can also self-park in the City of Chicago Grant Park South Underground Garage (cross Michigan Avenue and turn north around the circle to enter the garage).

Traveling by Train

METRA offers full schedule information on their web site.

From the suburbs, you'll take METRA trains to the Loop. The station at which you arrive depends on your starting location:

  • trains from the northern and northwestern suburbs arrive at the Ogilvie Transportation Center (formerly the Northwestern Station) on the corner of Madison St. & Canal St.
  • trains from the western and some southwestern suburbs arrive at Union Station, at 210 S. Canal
  • trains from the south arrive at the Randolph Street Station

Getting to the Roosevelt University:

  • From Ogilvie and Union Stations, it's about 1.2 miles to the Roosevelt University. Walk east towards the lake to Michigan Ave., and then south to Roosevelt University at the corner of Michigan and Congress.
  • From the Van Buren Street Station, you'll exit on Michigan Avenue. Walk one block south to Roosevelt University at the corner of Michigan and Congress.

CTA/EL Train

From locations within the city, you can take the EL to the Loop. The closest station to the university depends on the El line you take:

  • Red Line – Jackson subway station, on State St. between Jackson St. and Van Buren Street
  • Brown, Green, Orange, Pink, and Purple Lines – Library elevated station on Van Buren St. just west of State St., on the north side of the Harold Washington library
  • Blue Line – Jackson subway station, on Dearborn St. just north or south of Jackson St.

Traveling by Bus

The Chicago Transit Authority operates many buses that serve Roosevelt University. The best way to plan your trip is to use the CTA Trip Planner. http://www.transitchicago.com
