Parking and Transit
There is a street car stop within one block. We recommend parking at the Green P lot that is just one block away. We recommend you pay the max rate for parking until 7 AM the next morning, which amounts to about $6 depending on when you arrive.
The doors to the building lock after 6PM. Your registration for the meeting will include contact information to reach us to have someone escort you in. The best bet is to arrive before 6PM and head to the fourth floor and head to the end of the hallway.
