Directions from downtown Chicago:

If you happen to be staying in downtown Chicago, the easiest way to get from your hotel to the DePaul University Student Center is to locate the “L” station nearest your hotel that services the Red, Brown, or Purple line. Take that train to the Fullerton “L” Station. When you get off, travel to Sheffield Ave. just a few steps west, turn left on Sheffield, and the Student Center will be ahead.

If you want to to learn more about how to get around town by public transportation (bus, “L”, etc.) – this link will take you to the CTA and all of their maps.

Cabs are also plentiful in this area.

Directions from The Willows Hotel

There is a large group of attendees staying at this hotel. It is about 1.5 miles and can be walked (walking directions), or you can grab a cab.  You can also walk a few blocks west to the Diversey Brown Line and take the CTA El Train for $2.25 to the Fullerton Stop.
