Travel Information

This year's EMM Festival is being held at Lewis University in the Chicago area. For campus map and directions, please visit

Flying to Chicago

Home by two major airports, flying to Chicago is very easy. Travelers can fly into either Midway or O'Hare. All major carriers fly to Chicago. The airport code for O'Hare is ORD and the code for Midway is MDW. Both airports are approximately 25 miles from Lewis University.

Getting Around

Although getting to Chicago is very easy, getting around can be challenging. Although mass transit is available, Lewis University is located in the Romeoville suburb and mass transit can be very challenging. Ride share services are available, but can be expensive. We highly recommend visitors rent a vehicle. Generally rates for car rental prices are competitive with other parts of the United States.


EMM recommends one hotel for visitors. The Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Lockport is approximately a 10 minute drive to Lewis University.
