Make Travel Plans

West Lafayette, Indiana, is conveniently located near the interstate that connects Indianapolis and Chicago. We're about one hour north of Indianapolis and two hours south of Chicago. Commercial travel to West Lafayette is easily accessible and lodging on and around campus is plentiful. The resources below will help you plan your trip.

Commercial Travel Services
  • Air Travel - The nearest commercial airports are Indianapolis International (65 miles) and Chicago O’Hare (140 miles) and Chicago Midway (130 miles). The Purdue Airport accommodates privately owned planes.

  • Shuttle Services from Airports - Shuttle service is provided to and from Indianapolis by Lafayette Limo. Shuttle service to and from O’Hare is provided by Express Air Coach or by Reindeer Shuttle.

  • Other Commercial Travel - Amtrak and Greyhound also serve the area, stopping at a station in Lafayette. From there, visitors can ride Greater Lafayette's CityBus system to Purdue (about 1.5 miles).

Driving and Parking

Recommended parking locations for Admissions visit events vary based on the event. Those who register for a visit through the Office of Admissions should refer to their visit confirmation email for event-specific driving and parking directions.

For full-day visit programs on Monday-Friday, guests park at the North Stadium Parking Lot. For most full-day visit programs on Saturday, guests park at the Grant Street Garage. Saturday with the Boilermakers is an exception -  those who arrive early enough for this football Saturday program can park in the Northwestern Avenue Garage. Occasionally, programs use the University Street Parking Garage for guest parking. Use this garage only if the visit program you're attending indicates this is where you should park - unauthorized vehicles will be ticketed on weekdays. 

For Daily Visits, guests park at the Grant Street Garage.
