Just seven miles south of the Loop and blocks from the Museum of Science and Industry, UChicago Presents is easy to get to by train (Metra), bus (#2, #6, or #192), or by car (Lake Shore Drive or I-90/94). Street parking is free and available around campus.
Rockefeller Memorial Chapel
The Lexington Lot, a small lot adjacent to Rockefeller Memorial Chapel on the west side of the building, offers a few parking spots within steps of the venue, available after 4 PM.

In addition, street parking is an option, both in the blocks around the Forum and along the Midway. During the school year, it is often more difficult to find a spot on the street, especially in the mornings.
