Transportation

By Air:

Most delegates will be flying into the South Bend Regional Airport. The South Bend Regional Airport is about 15 minutes by car from the Notre Dame campus (flights should be booked to South Bend, Indiana.) From the airport, go east on Lincolnway West (left out of the airport) to downtown South Bend. Turn left on Indiana 933 (Michigan Street) and proceed about two miles to Angela Boulevard. Turn right onto Angela, and then turn left at the first stoplight (Notre Dame Avenue.) Follow Notre Dame Avenue and the Morris Inn will be on your left.

Delegates can also fly into Chicago. The university is about two hours away by car from O'Hare International Airport and about 9o minutes from Midway International Airport. From O'Hare, take I-190 east out of the airport, merge onto I-90 east (the Kennedy Expressway) toward downtown Chicago and merge with I-94 south (the Dan Ryan Expressway.) Take the Skyway exit off the Dan Ryan and remain on I-90 to the Indiana Toll Road, which merges with I-80. From the Illinois border, it is about 75 miles to Exit 77 (the South Bend/Notre Dame exit.)

Coach USA operates a motor coach bus service between both O'Hare and Midway Airports in Chicago and the Notre Dame campus. The bus departs every two hours and makes several stops; travel time to campus is approximately three hours. A one-way fare is $35; round-trip fare is $61.
