===UIC Environs: Lunch and Parking===
* [ Lunch and parking map], curated by Allan Berry
* Food options are mostly clustered in three places: Greektown (N of the freeway along Halsted), Taylor street (SW of campus), and University Village (S along Halsted).
===Getting to UIC===
* '''Public Transit''': Take the Blue Line west from the Loop; get off at the UIC-Halsted stop. Walk south.
* [ More information on visiting UIC], including (better) mass-transit directions
* If you're driving, there are several parking lots available (marked on the above map); I recommend the one south of campus (1135 Morgan). Note that no streets connect Harrison with Taylor, including Morgan, between Racine and Halsted; to reach the south lot, come up Morgan from Roosevelt.
===Circle Interchange difficulties===
* Circle Interchange (the confluence of I-90 and I-290 just NE of campus) construction is ongoing.
* Construction is causing traffic havoc nearby, especially near the corner of Harrison and Halsted. The Harrison bridge over I-90 doesn't currently exist. Best to avoid this area if possible.
