Lodging for out-of-town attendees

There are a number of hotels (5 page pdf, 25KB) that are close to the Caltech campus where we have a negotiated rate. (Please note that this negotiated rate does not guarantee you the lowest rate as there may be internet specials or AAA rates that may be better.)

We also may be able to get you into the Athenaeum (beautiful hotel on Campus). Contact Sharon Bryant if you would like to check the availability of this option.

Parking (for Visitors and for JPL Personnel)

For Visitors: Please park in the California Blvd. Parking Garage that is located under the athletic field. (See map (1 page PDF, 536K).) The garage is south of California, east of Wilson and west of Arden.

Purchase a $6 parking pass at the entrance to the garage, or ask Sharon Bryant to send you one ahead of time. Don't forget to display your parking pass. As you reach the bottom of the ramp and turn to enter the garage, go straight ahead (head down) and proceed down one level. Do not turn right and park on the top level. Make sure you park in one of the COMMUTER spots (look for a red stripe on the ground in front of the parking spot) and have your hang tag visible.

Exit as indicated on the map and proceed to the workshop location.

For JPL Personnel: The JPL hang tag used by employees with on-Lab parking privileges is the only permit required for campus parking. Employees who do not have on-Lab parking privileges can obtain a hang tag created for this purpose from JPL parking coordinator Robert Kennedy (818-354-4586, Building 310-108B, 9/80 schedule). Please park in the California Blvd. Parking Garage that is located under the athletic field. (See map (1 page PDF, 536K).) The garage is south of California, east of Wilson and west of Arden. As you enter into the garage, go straight ahead (head down). Make sure you park in one of the COMMUTER spots (look for a red stripe on the ground in front of the parking spot) and have your hang tag visible.
