To the participants of the 2012 UCLA-UCSD Graduate Student Conference on
Culture and Mind:
The conference will be held on the third floor of Haines Hall in the Reading Room (Haines #352). Haines Hall is located on the quad at 375 Portola Plaza, 341 Haines Hall, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1553.
For those people driving to join us, the parking lot closest to Haines Hall is Lot #5. Please see the next 2 posts for relevant maps of campus and its parking lots.
Please note that after the conference, we invite all attendees to a reception held at The Glendon Bar and Kitchen in Westwood. The restaurant is located at 1071 Glendon Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90024.
Contact your university’s organizers if you have any questions or would like an electronic PDF of the schedule for this year’s conference, or maps to the UCLA campus, UCLA parking structures, and The Glendon Bar and Kitchen.
We have reserved courtesy day permits for 6 cars of students traveling from UCSD. Any additional students should carpool, if possible, to decrease your travel costs and help the environment. Alternatively, additional drivers can purchase a daily Pay & Display parking permit (available for $11) at the self-service kiosks located in parking structures #2-6 or #8 (map here: UCLA Parking Structures & Self-Pay Kiosk Locations).
All drivers receiving complimentary parking will need to redeem their free parking pass by printing out and bringing the PDF reservation confirmation that Nofit has distributed to the specified drivers. This is not a final parking permit, but is required to receive the permit. The day of the conference, those vehicles will need to drive up to a staffed Parking & Information Booth (most likely the one on Westholme Ave. & Hilgard Ave., near our Faculty Center – see below for more on this) and show their PDF print-out. The staff will ask for the name listed on the reservation, and they may also request to see ID. Then, the staff will retrieve your permit and direct your car to Lot #5.
UC faculty with parking permits at their home institution also receive complimentary parking as long as they bring their UCSD parking permit and show it to a UCLA parking attendant at a Parking & Information Booth such as the one described above (Westholme Ave. & Hilgard Ave.).
Employees at any Parking & Information Booth can provide directions from their booth to the parking structure. However, the easiest route from the Westholme & Hilgard Booth is to go back out the way you came in (there is a street light directly to the left of the Booth) and turn left, back onto Hilgard Ave. Then make another left onto Sunset Blvd., and a final left onto Royce Dr. Once you park, walk down past Rolfe & Royce Hall and come into Haines. Go up to the 3rd floor, and join us in Haines 352, our Reading Room.
If for some reason you arrive late or the parking booth on Westholme & Hilgard is unstaffed, you may go to any other campus parking booth (marked with an “i” on the map link provided above) to be helped. The closest booth would be near Structure 4 (at Sunset Blvd. & Westwood Plaza); that information booth closes at noon on Fridays.
