The campus is 30 miles north of downtown Chicago — about an hour’s train ride.
The Lake Forest Metra station is a 15-minute walk from campus. From there, the Union Pacific North Line will take you into Ogilvie Transportation Center in downtown Chicago.
Once in the city, it’s easy to get around. Elevated trains ( the “L”) and buses run often and to almost everywhere you want to go.
