Arendt Circle 2022 Travel Information

Air Travel:

If you are arriving by plane, you should plan to fly into either O’Hare international airport or Midway airport.

Train Travel:

If you are arriving by train you should plan to arrive at Union Station. You can take Amtrak trains to Union Station. From there, you’ll have access to public transport, taxis, and ride share options.

Public Transit to Campus:

The Lake Shore Campus (LSC) is conveniently located off the CTA Red Line – Loyola “L” station at 1032 W Sheridan Rd. The CTA bus 147 also drops off directly in front of the LSC.

Hotel Accommodations:

We have reserved 10 rooms at a rate of $129/night at the Hampton Inn Chicago North Loyola Station. The hotel is right across the street from campus and just off the Loyola stop on the red line of the L. It’s a 30-40 minute uber ride from O’Hare (public transportation is also available), and it’s easy to get from the hotel to downtown Chicago on the train if participants want to explore. We encourage participants to book a room at their earliest convenience. We may be able to reserve more rooms at this rate however this is dependent on timely reservations and cannot be confirmed.

In order to reserve a room with this special rate, please let the hotel know that you are part of the Arendt Circle group. If you have any issues please contact our administrative assistance, Lucas Abramson ( and Circle host, Jennifer Gaffney (
