 Transportation

  • L TRAIN: You can take the CTA L train (Brown, Red or Purple lines) to the Fullerton stop. Walk west on Fullerton one half block to Sheffield St. and then left one block to Student Center.

New to the L?
Fare is $2.25 each way. You should probably ask the CTA attendants to show you how things work and to recommend the best fare card for your situation. (For weekends or late night schedules, see the Chicago Transit Authority website for details on limited schedule.  Beware of the change machines in the CTA stations: they dispense dollar coins in change, which can add up to a lot of weight in your pockets if you change a $20 bill.)

  • L train from Midway: Take      the train (Orange Line, the only one there) from inside the airport into      downtown.  Change to the Red, Brown or Purple Line train northbound      (toward Howard St.) at either the Clark/Lake station or the State/Lake      station.  Exit at theFullerton Station.  Walk west on Fullerton one half block      to Sheffield St. and then left one block to Student Center, or go four      blocks to Clifton St. and then left a half block for Clifton-Fullerton      Dorm entrance.
  • L      train from O’Hare:      Take the train (Blue Line, the only one there) from inside the airport      into downtown.  At the Clark/Lake station, change to the Brown Line      northbound (towardKimball Ave.).  Walk west      on Fullerton one half block to Sheffield St. and then left one block to      Student Center, or go four blocks to Clifton St. and then left a half      block for Clifton-Fullerton Dorm entrance.
