Parking & Lodging


Parking is available in Lot 13, marked in red on the map to the right. All day parking passes are available for $5 and can be purchased on the day of the conference. Follow signs from the parking lot to our meeting location (TBA). Many UCR graduate students park for free off campus. Neighborhoods are generally safe but cars do occasionally get broken into, so you do so at your own risk. The best off-campus parking is around the intersection of Big Springs and Watson.

UCR does offer parking pass reciprocity for faculty, staff and students that have passes for other UCs. More information about this policy can be found here.


Directions are available from UCR through the directions function of the campus map.
