OCC is 30 minutes or less from O'Hare Airport, a major transportation hub. This makes our workshop ideal for people from out of state, looking for affordable flights.

There will be a lunch break each day at around 12 PM that will last from one hour and fifteen minutes.
There a number of affordable hotels within 5 miles of the campus. Please use your favorite travel search engine to identify the best deals. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about area hotels.
