Life at Chicago-Kent
Location and Getting Around
Chicago-Kent College of Law is located in Illinois Tech’s Conviser Law Center at 565 West Adams Street (at the corner of South Jefferson Street) in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood, one block west of Union Station (Amtrak and Metra commuter trains) and three blocks south of the Ogilvie Transportation Center (Chicago/Northwestern station for Metra commuter trains). Both train stations are the terminus of numerous Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus routes, making it easy to catch a cab, train, or bus to or from practically anywhere in the city or suburbs. Additionally, full-time enrollment at Chicago-Kent includes a Chicago Transit Authority U-Pass that makes getting around inexpensive
For those that drive, the law school's proximity to Chicago's major north/south and east/west expressways—just two blocks east of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94) and three blocks north of the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290)—makes commuting easy. We have discount parking agreements with multiple garages within walking distance of our campus.
