The medical campus is easily accessible by public transportation (blue or pink CTA lines, or bus). If you choose to drive, please park in the main parking garage located at 1800 W. Polk Street. You will receive a parking ticket upon entering the garage, and please keep it safe in order to park for free. When paying at the machine, you have to insert the parking ticket, followed by the chaser ticket, in order to park for free. Please note that if your ticket is lost, then you will be charged because the chaser ticket does not work without the parking ticket. Please factor in parking time in your planning.
