Parking & Transportation

Campus Parking:

Annual/Quarterly Evening/Weekend Parking Permit
If you plan to drive to the Chicago campus, you may want to consider purchasing an annual or quarterly parking permit. The Evening/Weekend Permit gives students access to the garage from 4:00 pm to 8:00 am the following morning, with 24-hour access on weekends and University holidays. This permit is valid at the Erie-Ontario garage (Lot D) at 321 E. Erie. For more information about this option, please visit the Chicago Campus Parking Office website

If you plan drive to campus two or more days per week, you may want to consider this option.

To submit an application online, please click here.

Weekend Permit: A weekend permit is also available if you only plan on driving in on the weekends.  Click here for more information.

Evening/Weekend Validation Parking
Validated tickets are accepted at the Erie-Ontario garage (Lot D, 321 E. Erie). When you enter the garage, you will receive a ticket from a machine. Bring this ticket with you to Wieboldt Hall and self-validate it in the student mailroom on the 1st floor. When you return to the garage, insert the ticket in one of the pay machines in the lobby. You should receive the discounted rate of $7.50 per evening/weekend day (see hours below). If you have any problems, push the call button and a garage attendant will assist you. Should you require reimbursement due to machine error, please contact Alana Stegich

If you plan to park on campus only once or twice per week, you may want to consider this option.

Discounted Rate Hours
Monday - Friday: 4:00 pm - 10:30 pm (same night)
Saturday - Sunday: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm
NOTE: If you enter/exit the parking lot outside of the hours indicated, you will be charged the full price, which can range up to $40. So be sure to follow the schedule!

Evanston Campus Parking
All vehicles parked on the Evanston campus must display a valid permit year round, Monday through Friday from 7:30 am until 4:00 pm. Therefore, if you plan to take evening classes in Evanston (and arrive after 4:00 pm), obtaining a parking permit is not necessary. Please note that some lots are enforced 24 hours a day. You should not park in these lots without a valid permit. A list of these lots is available on the parking office website.

Shuttle Services:

Campus Shuttles
Intercampus shuttles run between the Evanston and Chicago campus. Free Enterprise buses are contracted to service this route. The Intercampus Shuttle runs year-round from Monday to Friday, except for University Holidays, between the Evanston and Chicago campuses. All buses are wheelchair accessible, except in the event of equipment malfunction. There is no charge for the shuttle service; however, you must present your WildCARD ID when boarding the shuttle.

Train Station Shuttles

You may purchase tickets for these shuttles in the Part-Time MBA Program Office in Chicago (cash or check only). Pick-up and drop-off locations, shuttle schedules, and the SafeRide Service schedule (i.e., late night service) are available here.     

Update: To accommodate new riders from the Lurie Children's Hospital, the university has added additional buses to the Union/Ogilvie Train Station Shuttle and Saferide Shuttle Chicago (i.e., late night service).
