Visiting UChicago CS
The University of Chicago Department of Computer Science is in the John Crerar Library Building, 5730 S. Ellis Ave.
The building is set back from the street between Drexel and Ellis Avenues and 57th and 58th street, as shown in yellow below. The main entrance is on the east side of the building (marked with *).
For short visits, metered street parking is often available on Ellis Avenue. For longer visits, or during peak hours, we recommend parking in University garages at 55th Street & Ellis or 57th Street & Cottage Grove. A map of all UChicago parking options is available here.
If you are taking a rideshare or taxi to our building, it is often best to choose the University of Chicago bookstore (970 E. 58th Street) as your destination, then walk west past it and northwest across the small quad to the John Crerar Library. University shuttle buses and CTA routes #171 and #172 also stop in front of the bookstore or Levi Hall on the other side of Ellis Ave.
For information on taking CTA or Metra train lines to the University of Chicago campus, see here.
