About the Designated Campus Boundaries
The Chicago campus boundaries are defined as:

Any person living within the campus boundaries of the University will not be eligible for a commuter permit. Living right on North Ave., Halsted St. or Congress Pkwy. does not necessarily establish eligibility.

Local addresses are secured from your official university records. Human Resources submits faculty and staff addresses and each school's Student Services office submits student addresses. If your address information is outdated or incorrect, it is your responsibility to have this corrected. Permits will not be issued until this information is current.

Proof of residency may be requested.
