Using Public transportation
Subway (or the L): The CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) Blue Line has a stop at UIC-Halsted. For taking the Blue line to the department, exit the subway car at the UIC-Halsted stop (it will be above ground in between the expressway), walk east up the ramp (towards the “Sears” tower) to Halsted street, then proceed south on Halsted street to Taylor street (approximately an 11 minute walk). The department is located on the south-west corner of Halsted and Taylor. You can, of course, also use other exits (i.e. walk west instead of east) from the UIC-Halsted stop and walk south directly through the campus.
