==UIC Environs: Lunch and Parking==
==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
* Parking in a UIC lot will cost $13 for a full day.
* 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.
