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.
