Getting there

By train from Chicago

There is no train from Chicago's airports directly to South Bend, but you can take the Rapid Transit from O'Hare Airport to downtown Chicago, then connect to the South Shore Line which takes you to South Bend airport (about three hours). You would then take a taxi to campus for about $14 (10 – 15min taxi ride).

At O'Hare airport, follow signs for ‘Trains to the city’, and take the Blue Line (the only line at the airport) to downtown. Tickets are purchased from machines at the station entrance.

Once in downtown Chicago, get off at Washington Station and follow signs to ‘Randolph/Washington’. The South Shore Line's station is on Randolph Street.

Directions and schedules are at the South Shore website – click ‘Directions in Chicago’. You can buy a ticket at the station or on the train.

The South Shore Line trains are relatively infrequent on weekends (several hours or more between trains) but while you wait you will be in a nice part of downtown Chicago.

By car

The university is about two hours (by car) from O'Hare Airport, less from Midway Airport.

From O'Hare Airport, take Route 190 east out of O'Hare to Route 90 east (Kennedy Expressway) toward downtown Chicago where it merges with Route 94 south (Dan Ryan Expressway). Take the Skyway exit off the Dan Ryan Expressway and remain on Route 90 to the Indiana Toll Road, which eventually merges with Route 80. Get off at Exit 77 (South Bend/Notre Dame).

Alternatively, there is a limousine run by Coach USA (formerly United Limo) that runs from the Chicago airports (Midway and O'Hare) to Notre Dame. It will drop you off right at campus and it’s about a three hour trip (90 miles). More information is available here.
