Parking and Check-In


Make sure to enter campus via the West Entrance and park in the West Parking Structure, which will be just ahead on your left. Parking is complimentary on the weekends, so you will not need to obtain a parking permit. Check-in will take place on the west end of the Plaza de Colachis, which is a short - but rather steep - walk up the hill from this structure. Should this walk pose any challenges to you or your family, trams will be available to take you up the hill. Trams will make regular pick ups from the ground level of the parking structure throughout the morning and will make return trips to the parking lot at the end of the event.


Check-In will begin at 8:45 a.m. at the west end of the Paseo de Colachis, in between Camino Hall and Olin Hall. After parking, you may either walk or take a campus tram up the hill toward the center of campus. From there, you will see signs directing you to the check-in area.
