Travel to ANL


Argonne National Laboratory is 23 miles southwest of downtown Chicago, and a comparable distance southeast of Fermilab.

Directions: From either O'Hare or Midway airports, United Limousine can bring you to the Lab. [Advance reservations, (800) 826 0341; arriving at the airport, (800) 331 9037; from Illinois (630) 969 3865; mention the "Argonne Rate".] There is also a free Shuttle to and from the University of Chicago.

We recommend you rent a car if you do not plan to stay on-site at the guest house. Car rentals are available at both airports. By car, you may reach us via I-55, the Stevenson Expressway: southwest-bound, get off at the Cass Avenue South Exit 273 — there is a sign alerting you to Argonne before that exit. Drive south for 1/7 mile, and turn right at the Argonne sign directing you to the Lab. I-294 is a toll road. Ask your car rental agency about I-Pass; the RF-ID device pays the toll fees.

Stop at the Argonne Information Center on the right side, and present government-issued photo ID to receive a gatepass authorizing you to enter the Lab, and which should be displayed prominently during your visit. They will also give you directions on how to drive to Building 362, and probably a legible version of this Argonne site map. High Energy Physics Division is located in Building 362, marked as purple on the map. Building 360 is adjacent to building 362. Building 360 is marked in yellow on the map
