Directions to the Department

The Linguistics Department is located on the Evanston campus of Northwestern University. The campus is located right on the shores of Lake Michigan, twelve miles north of downtown Chicago. Evanston is the first suburb north of the City of Chicago. See the footer of these pages for our address and contact information.

Once you are on Northwestern campus: The Linguistics Department is housed in a quaint three-story Victorian house, located at 2016 Sheridan Road, on the west side of Sheridan (facing the lake) just north of Foster Avenue. The main office is on the first floor, to the left of the main entrance.

Parking is available in a large lot immediately north of the department. However, you will need a daily parking permit. Ask for one in our main office. Limited free parking for two hours is available on neighboring streets.
