What is the closest airport to Beloit?

Beloit is located within easy driving distance of Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago, each of which has a major airport. We recommend, however, that participants fly into Chicago O'Hare International Airport, since the Van Galder Bus Company provides direct service from Chicago O'Hare to South Beloit. Participants can then be picked up at the stop in South Beloit by CLS staff or take a taxi to the dormitory.  CLS Staff provides a shuttle from morning to night on the day of check-in.
