The Disciples Divinity House is located at 1156 East 57th Street, between Woodlawn and University Avenues. It is adjacent to the University’s main quadrangle, one block east of the University’s Regenstein Library, and immediately across the street from the Quadrangle Club. Enter the House on the east side of the courtyard (to the right when the street is behind you); University Church is on the west side of the courtyard.
On-street parking is free, but you may have to park several blocks away if classes are in session. Drivers can drop off passengers in front of the building. Some paid visitor parking is available in the University’s Campus North Parking Structure.

From Lake Shore Drive
Exit to 57th Street and the Museum of Science and Industry. Follow the signs toward the University of Chicago. You will pass the Museum on your left and briefly turn south onto S. Cornell Ave. Stay in the right lane to merge onto Midway Plaisance Drive, a park-like boulevard that runs east-west between 59th and 61st Streets. At the Woodlawn Avenue light, turn right and proceed north to 57th Street, where you will turn left. DDH is on the right.
From the Dan Ryan Expressway (I90/94)
Exit at Garfield Boulevard (55th Street), turn east onto Garfield. After Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, Garfield/55th winds through Washington Park; at the “Y” in the road, stay to the right and, after another block or so, turn left on 57th Street. Drive past the Regenstein Library (to your left) and the main quadrangle (to your right) to 1156 East 57th Street (on the left).
Transportation from O’Hare Airport
The GO Airport Express shuttle departs from the Bus/Shuttle Center. Ask the driver to drop you at the Quadrangle Club, 1155 East 57th Street. DDH is directly across the street. Return service is also available, departing from the Quadrangle Club. Be sure to allow for extra travel time if you are departing during morning or evening commuting times.
Transportation from Midway Airport
A taxi, Uber, or Lyft ride is the quickest option. In addition, the CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) bus #55/Garfield runs on 55th Street between the University and Midway Airport; the cost is $2.25 and the trip usually takes an hour or so. When you are near campus, look for the Woodlawn or University stops and get off there. Walk two blocks south to 57th Street, and turn there to find DDH between Woodlawn and University Avenues.
