Getting Here, Staying Here
All talks will be held in Material Sciences room 003 at UCR. See Campus Map. Signs directing you to the Material Sciences Building should be clearly posted.
How to Find Parking
Non-UC permit holders can park in Lot 1. Go to the University Kiosk to get a daily permit for $6 and park in Lot 1, which is right near the Kiosk. Or see more details.
Those having a parking permit from a sister campus in the UC system can, in principle, park for free in any lot, in accordance with your permit. (Lot 24 is the most convenient option in this case.) In practice, however, UCR parking personnel sometimes mistakenly ticket such parkers anyway. Hence, it is safest for all parkers to first visit the University Kiosk.
Places to Stay
Though many of you will find it easiest to drive to and from UCR on the day of the symposium, following is some information on hotels in the area.
The On-Campus International Residence Center (IRC) is operated by the UCR Extension Center and offers hotel-like rooms for $60 per night for a single room. Their availability is limited, so rooms should be reserved in advance. Please E-mail one of the organizer as soon as possible if you wish to stay at the IRC and we will arrange accomodation. Parking at the UCR extension center (where the IRC rooms are located) requires the purchase of a parking permit for $5 per day.
The following hotels are only a slightly farther walk away than the IRC and offer a UCR rate (tell them you are visiting UCR when you call):
- Comfort Inn
1590 University Ave.
Riverside, CA 92507
The grandest place to stay is beyond walking distance in downtown at the Mission Inn, which also offers a UCR rate:
- Mission Inn
3649 Mission Inn Ave.
Riverside, CA 92501
