Threshold Driving and Parking Information
The City of Chicago is beginning work on Foster Avenue that will require alternate routes for individuals and families coming from I-90 and/or I-94. Detour directions will be posted on the street, but we also have suggested alternate routes to get you to campus through as little street congestion as possible. Read our directions to campus.
North Park's campus can be a little confusing to first-time visitors, so we've put together helpful maps for Welcome Day. Each living area has specific directions for how you should drive up, unload, and then proceed to park your car. Be sure to check the schedule for what time move-in starts for each residence.
These maps note campus parking lots, but you will also find parking option on neighborhood streets surrounding our campus. If you choose to park on Foster Avenue, be advised that this is a metered street with a two-hour parking limit, so be sure to pay the meter and watch your time.
Local Lodging and Dining
We've put together the following maps to help you locate some options for lodging and eating options while you're at North Park. These are just a few selections from the many options in the city and surrounding suburbs. We encourage you to explore and find what works best for you and your family.
