Getting back to the expressway after your visit
To ensure traffic moves smoothly, please do not enter campus at 58th Street and Cottage Grove Avenue. Please only use 58th Street for exiting the medical campus.
Parking locations are labeled on the University of Chicago Medical Campus Map (PDF).
We encourage patients and visitors to use our valet parking service. It’s convenient and usually less expensive than self-parking. Valet parking is offered directly in front of all of our patient care facilities: Center for Care and Discovery, Bernard A. Mitchell Adult Hospital, Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine (DCAM), and Comer Children's Hospital. Remember to ask clinic staff about discounted parking. » Learn more about valet parking rates and hours.
If you choose to self-park, please add at least 30 minutes to your travel time to allow for traffic in the garage. Valet is the recommended parking option.
To self-park at the main hospital parking garage, continue to 59th Street and turn north on Maryland Avenue. The garage entrance is located on the left side of the street. Hourly rates apply. Please ask clinic staff about discounted parking rates for patients and visitors.
