How to Find Your Way Around HPSD's Facilities
All HPSD studios and offices are located at 5650 S. Woodlawn Avenue (Chicago IL 60637) in the Pennington Center, a low brick building attached to the north side of a grey brick church building on the northwest corner of 57th & Woodlawn.
Enter through the double doors by the long wooden ramp, check in with our Entry Attendant, and follow the signs to the middle stairwell that leads to all studios and our public office.
Studio 1 (2nd Floor Woolman Hall): From the middle stairwell, continue straight through to the end of the hallway and turn left to go upstairs to the studio waiting room area. All Studio 1 participants should exit the same way they entered unless notified otherwise.
Studio 2 (formerly Studio B, basement level): From the middle stairwell, proceed downstairs and through the corner entranceway to arrive in the studio waiting room area. All Studio 2 participants should exit through the garden doors on either side of the studio.
Studios 3-5 (NEW! - 2nd Floor Pennington Center): From the middle stairwell, proceed upstairs to the corner entrance on the left to enter our new studio space. All Studio 3-5 participants should leave through the stairwell on the northeast side of the building, down and out to the first floor or basement garden doors to exit.
- Studio 3 is the second studio to the left in the northwest corner of the building.
- Studio 4 is the studio to the right on the east side of the building.
- Studio 5 is the first studio to the left in the southwest corner of the building.
- HPSD Public Office (2nd Floor): From the middle stairwell, proceed upstairs to the first door on the right.
Parking at HPSD
Street parking is available on Woodlawn, 57th St. and the other streets surrounding HPSD facilities. Most of these streets are not permit or meter parking - free of charge, first come, first serve. There is no parking lot available to HPSD clients.
Please be aware that there are occasionally street events during the year around 57th and Woodlawn that may make finding parking more difficult. The annual 57th Street Art Fair and University of Chicago Convocation, both in June, sometimes the same weekend, are two such events.
