Planning to come to uchi-con but not familiar with the area? Not to worry! We'll help you plan your con adventure ahead of time with tips and maps below.
uchi-con is located in Ida Noyes Hall and the Harper Memorial Building at the University of Chicago. Sign-in and Artist Alley are at Ida, whose address is 1212 E 59th St, Chicago, IL 60637. Panels, screenings, and other events are in Harper, whose address is 1116 E 59th St, Chicago, IL 60637.
Because we are on a university campus, there is plenty of free street parking on the Midway (the grassy span of four parallel streets on which Ida Noyes Hall is located). However, if you do not arrive early enough, much or all of these spots will have already been taken. For a complete list of potential other parking places around the University of Chicago campus, please check this website.
At uchi-con, most of the paid events require cash-only. This includes the Photobooth, Film Screening, and Cafe. In fact, the only exception is for artists in the artists' alley; some of them do accept cards. So in case you arrive at the con and find yourself lacking enough cash for all of the events you want to take part in, we've provided a map (to the left) of the nearest ATMs to our location on campus! Staff members at the con will also be more than happy to direct you on how to get to an ATM.
