Location and Hotels

The workshop will take place at UIC's "Academic and Residential Complex" (ARC), 507 S Morgan St, Chicago, IL 60607. There are several options of hotels nearby:

Holiday Inn & Suites Chicago-Downtown, located a 0.5 mile walk from ARC.

Crowne Plaza Chicago West Loop, located a 0.7 mile walk from ARC.

Chicago Marriott at Medical District/UIC, located a 0.8 mile walk from ARC.

ARC is also very easy to get to via public transportation from downtown Chicago, both by train and bus. The Blue Line can be taken to the UIC-Halsted stop (a 0.1 mile walk to ARC), and so many more hotels in Chicago's downtown provide easy access to UIC's campus.
