Via Auto from Fermilab

While we highly discourage driving to Madison, here are directions from Fermilab:

    Take I-88 Tollway west from FNAL. Merge onto I-39 North towards ROCKFORD. Near Rockford, take the I-90 W exit towards WISCONSIN. Later, take the 18/12 (exit 142A on the LEFT) towards MADISON. Take the PARK ST exit (261B)and head towards the right (North) on PARK ST. About 4 miles later you will reach the corner of Park & University Avenue. The Dormitory is on the Left. There is a pull in where you can unload just past the dorm on the Park Street side.

Dorm Location

Chadbourne Hall is on the corner of Park Street and University Avenue.

If you need parking arrangements please contact the secretariat ASAP but no later than June 10, 2011. If you show up with out having made any arrangements, there are two public parking ramps that charge by the hour available on Lake St. and are within a 5-minute walk to Chadbourne Hall. On-street parking is very difficult to find on campus, and university parking lots requiring permits are closely patrolled, so public ramps are the way to go if you failed to make arrangements ahead of time. Vehicles may be left in public ramps for 48 hours before being ticketed and towed.
