Travelling Between The Lincoln Park And Loop Campuses

The fastest and most direct method of traveling between DePaul's Lincoln Park and Loop campuses is to take one of either of the two major CTA Rapid Transit lines that stop at the Fullerton elevated train station. The Brown Line and the Purple line travel the elevated tracks downtown to the Wabash/Adams stop (near the Computer Science Center) or the Library stop (near DePaul Center). The Red Line travels the subway downtown to the Jackson stop at State and Jackson (near DePaul Center). To get to the Lincoln Park campus from the Loop, begin from any of these downtown stops and travel north to the Fullerton station.
