The campus address is

Chicago O'Hare Airport (airport code ORD) is the closest airport serving the area.

Public shuttle and taxi services are available. Our venue is about an hour from O'Hare airport, so ride sharing may be most economical. Shuttle Service is available through Chicago North Shore Limo and will take you directly to the campus. Passengers are responsible for booking themselves and the most economical way is to book together whenever possible to split the cost of the ride. The shuttle company will assist in coordinating shared shuttle rides when possible. Reservations can be made directly through the TLS Shuttle Reservation website or by email or phone: 800-242-2657. Please let the shuttle company know you are attending the TLS Gathering and be prepared to provide your flight information.
