Travel and Parking

Getting to Irvine
The most convenient airport is Orange County (airport code SNA, John Wayne Airport).  There are a number of hotels near the airport.

For most international travel the best airport is LAX.  Here are some options for transportation from LAX to Irvine:
  • Uber or Lyft
  • Blue Sky Transway: private door-to-door service, can reserve by email, cash only, approximately $85 plus tip
  • SuperShuttle: door-to-door, shared or private

Most lectures will be held in the McDonnell Douglas Engineering Auditorium, #311 in H8 on the campus map.   The only exception is Whitfield Diffie's public lecture on Monday afternoon September 17, which will be in room 6011 of Donald Bren Hall, #314 in H8 on the campus map.

To park anywhere on campus requires a permit, which costs $10/day.  The closest parking to the lectures is the Anteater Parking Structure in H10  on the campus map. You can purchase a permit at the entrance to the parking structure.  Other lots and permit kiosks are marked on the campus map (but some of the kiosks, such as the one in lot 12B, only sell hourly permits which will cost more).  Quarterly or annual parking permits from other UC campuses are honored at UCI.
