How to Get There

Air, Train, Bus or Car

Welcome to Chicago!

No matter where you’re coming from, we think you’re going to love Chicago! Chicago is an amazing city that offers a lot of fun things to see and do, especially in the summer months, so  plan to come early and stay late.

There are a variety of ways to get to the Chicago Congress, we advise you to do your research. We have provided some links below that might be helpful in navigating your way to the ‘Windy City’.

Chicago has two International airports, O’Hare and Midway.  O’Hare International Airport is closer to Loyola University with easy transportation by train, bus, cab or Uber.  But for those Southwest Airlines fliers coming from the States, Midway is the airport to use.

We suggest you book early in order to get the best rate for your travel. We will be updating this page with more travel information over the next several months…
