Directions By Train

  • Take the westbound (Forest Park) blue line train to the UIC-Halsted Street stop
  • There are currently two exits from the platform to street level. Take the ramp and exit out of the Morgan street entrance.
  • Exit the station and face South. You can easily tell what direction you’re facing because the Loop is to your left when you’re facing South. You'll be standing on a pedestrian overpass that spans I-290.
  • Walk South for four blocks until you are at the corner of Roosevelt and Halsted. Cross to the East side of the street by the UIC Forum. Continue one block south to 1253 S. Halsted
