Hotel and Travel Information


The most convenient airport is the Chicago O'Hare International Airport (code: ORD).

Taxi services:

Call these numbers at the arrival level after you have picked up your checked-in baggage. Do not take City of Chicago taxis.

Taking one of these taxis to Northwestern University or the nearby hotels will be approximately 40 minutes and cost $35-$45 including tip.

For driving directions to Northwestern University see here. For a link to the full campus map, please click here. A more detailed map of the conference venue and surronding area is available here.


For those of you driving, you may park on campus for free at the weekends as long as there is no special notice in the parking lot saying otherwise. There is a parking lot very close to the conference lecture hall, just north of Lunt Hall (see the map).

During the week the best option is to park in the City of Evanston Parking Garage on Clark Street, see here for a map.
