103rd Street-Rosemoor (or 103rd Street) is an electrified commuter rail station along Metra Electric's main line on the border in Roseland, Chicago. It is located over 103rd Street and Cottage Grove Avenue, and is 13.06 miles (21.02 km) away from the northern terminus at Randolph Street Station.[1] In Metra's zone-based fare system, 103rd Street Station is in zone C.

103rd Street-Rosemoor Station shares part of its name with two other stations on the Rock Island District line to the west. The first is on the Rush Hour Branch in Washington Heights, and the other is on the Beverly Branch (or "Suburban Line") in the Beverly Hills section of Chicago to the west. This 103rd Street is the nearest Metra Electric station to Gately Stadium Park, which is used both by high school and Chicago State University athletic teams. Though Metra gives the address as 103rd Street & Cottage Grove Avenue, parking areas are actually located on 103rd Street and Dauphin Avenue.
