To arrange for a convenient parking spot, please contact Carol Duran a few days prior to your visit.
As you approach campus, you need to stop at the visitor center at the corner of Dalrymple and Highland (star in the parking map and the destination in the driving directions above) and request a visitor parking permit. If you pre-arranged for visitor parking then they will direct you to an appropriate spot.
Otherwise, please, download the campus parking map. There are parking meters by the union (yellow on the map). The green and blue colored areas indicate free visitor parking. Best bet, try the green areas west of the Union.
This map also gives parking suggestions.
Please contact Carol Duran for information about reimbursements. Be sure to tell her the nature of your visit (i.e. for a LA-SiGMA seminar, etc.).
