Parking: If driving, we recommend people park in the Hopkins parking structure nearby. There is visitor parking on the top floor of the structure. It is free for the first hour and $2/hr after. To get from Hopkins Parking Structure to event headquarters, walk south on Hopkins lane. Go past the roundabout onto the footpath. This path leads down to the front of the library and Library Walk. 

Transit: Please consider taking the MTS Trolley, which connects campus with most of San Diego. From the Trolley, take the path around the Northeast side of Epstein Family Amphitheater, then walk west on Lyman lane till you get to library walk. An extensive network of bike paths connect UCSD with La Jolla and downtown.
