Auditorium Building EntranceRoosevelt University has two main campuses, one in downtown Chicago and one in Schaumburg, Illinois. The downtown campus includes  the Gage Building at 18 S. Michigan Avenue, the Auditorium Building at 430 S. Michigan Avenue with its adjoining Wabash Building at 425 S. Wabash Avenue .  The Lillian and Larry Goodman Center is at the corner of Wabash Avenue and Congress Parkway, across from the Auditorium Building. The Wabash Dance Studios are at  218 S. Wabash Avenue. The two campuses, one in the city and the other in the suburbs, as well as sites in communities, schools and corporations, continue the mission of a truly metropolitan university.

Traveling by Car

The Auditorium Building (Chicago Campus) is located at 430 S. Michigan Avenue (at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Congress Parkway). The Goodman Center is across the street at the corner of Wabash Avenue and Congress Parkway. From other expressways turn onto the eastbound Eisenhower Expressway which becomes Congress Parkway. If you park in the Auditorium Garage across Congress Parkway from the university, you should stamp your ticket in the Roosevelt lobby to get a discount during weekdays. Discounts are not available on the weekends. You can also self-park in the City of Chicago Grant Park South Underground Garage (cross Michigan Avenue and turn north around the circle to enter the garage).
