Types of Transportation Available to Campus:
O'Hare International Airport in Chicago is 18 miles from campus. Bus service is available from the airport to Northwester's Foster Walker Complex (and to Evanston's Holiday Inn and Omni Orrington Hotel). Amtrak trains and Greyhound/Trailways buses provide service to Chicago. From there, take the CTA rapid-transit system to Howard St. and transfer to the Evanston train. Get off at the Davis St. stop and walk east on Davis St. to Orrington Ave.; walk north on Orrington to Clark St., then east on Clark to Hinman Ave. and the admissions office.
Driving Instructions to Campus:
From I-94 (Edens Expy.), take the Dempster St. east exit. From Dempster, head north on Hinman Ave. to the admissions office (at Clark St.).
Local Accommodations: Near By:
There's a range of choices in Evanston. The Hotel Orrington (1710 Orrington Ave.; 847-866-8700) is one block from the southern tip of the university. Its rates are expensive, although on the weekends you may be able to get a moderate rate. The Hilton Garden Inn (1818 Maple Avenue, 847-475-6400), is about six blocks from campus. Expensive. The Homestead (1625 Hinman Ave., 847-475-3300), is less expensive and just 2 blocks south of the campus and the lake, has 10 guest rooms and a restaurant. Another bargain is The Best Western University Plaza (1501 Sherman Ave., 847-491-6400), just 4 blocks from campus. Its rates include a breakfast buffet. Other alternatives are the Hampton Inn and Suites (Old Orchard Rd., 847-583-1111 - 20 minutes from campus), and the North Shore Skokie Hotel and Executive Meeting Center (9599 Skokie Blvd., 847-679-7000 is 15 minutes from campus.
Local Accommodations: Far Away:
Check the University of Chicago entry for alternatives a little farther afield in Chicago. Winnetka, covered in the Lake Forest College entry, is not too far north of Evanston, and Chateau Des Fleurs listed there might interest you.
