Getting to the Wabash Campus

For those of you flying into Chicago for World Dip Con (June 24-26 at Roosevelt University’s Wabash Building in Chicago), taking the L train couldn’t be easier.

From Midway Airport (the slightly preferred airport of your 2016 WDC), you can take the Orange Line to the Harold Washington Library train station. The library is at 400 S. State St. The Wabash Building is at 425 S. Wabash Ave. State is one block west of Wabash. The train ride should take 24 minutes (eight stops), and the walk, less than five minutes.

From O’Hare Airport, you can take the Blue Line toward Forest Park to the LaSalle stop, which is at LaSalle and Congress. The Wabash Building is at 425 S. Wabash Ave. (Wabash and Congress.) LaSalle is four blocks west of Wabash. The train ride should take 44 minutes (20 stops), and the walk, less than 10.

If you’re flying in, please email your itinerary to We’ll figure out the logistics and let you know whether we can pick you up or would like you to take the L. If you are a former WDC champion, we will make every effort to not only pick you up but also carry your bags.

If you’re coming in from the suburbs, consider taking the train. Union Station is six blocks west and two blocks north of the venue.

Driving is also an option. There are numerous parking losts on Wabash, south of the venue, and on Harrison, west of the venue. Most will cost you $25 to $30 for 24 hours, but Roosevelt may validate. Learn more here.

The red line also is conveniently located. The Harrison and Jackson stops are both less than three blocks from the campus.
