Location

IIT Chicago-Kent is located on IIT's downtown campus at 565 West Adams Street (at the corner of South Jefferson St.) in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood, one block west of Union Station (Amtrak and Metra commuter trains) and three blocks south of the Ogilvie Transportation Center (Chicago/Northwestern station for Metra commuter trains).

The law school's proximity to Chicago's major north/south and east/west expressways—just two blocks east of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94) and three blocks north of the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290)—makes Chicago-Kent easily accessible from anywhere in the city and suburbs. Nearby discounted parking is available for students, faculty and staff.

Numerous Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus routes terminate or make stops at the two nearby commuter train stations. The law school is also within walking distance of two CTA elevated train ("L") stations and one CTA subway station.

The law school is a short walk from the Dirksen Federal Building, which houses the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, and numerous federal agencies; the Daley Center, which houses the Illinois state courts; and LaSalle Street, the hub of law practice in Chicago. Because of the law school's location, Chicago-Kent students are able to observe and participate meaningfully in the legal process during their law school careers.

Chicago-Kent students may also take advantage of the library, athletic facilities and course offerings on IIT's Main Campus, three miles south of the Loop. A shuttle bus service connects the Downtown Campus with the Main Campus.
