Maps and Directions
The Research Forum will be held in the McDonnell Douglas Auditorium. Please note that we anticipate that lot 18/18A will be under construction at this time. Lot 18 C is closest to the McDonnell Douglas Auditorium.
Campus maps are available.
Parking lot 18C is located in section 8/9 E, near Middle Earth, on the campus map. (On the PDF map on the web, ignore the lot labeled 18C near 18 and 18B - it's mis-labeled. That's really lot 18A, which will be under construction.)
Maps of the area around the Institute and ICS are also available.
You need a parking permit to park at UC Irvine. Currently there are parking permit dispensers at only at some entrances to UC Irvine. These directions bring you onto campus via one of these entrances: East Peltason Drive.

From South: Take the 405 North. Exit on University/Jeffrey. Go left onto University. Go Left onto Culver. Go Right onto Campus Rd. Go Left on EAST Peltason Drive, which takes you into UC Irvine.

McDonnell Douglas Auditorium
The McDonnell Douglas Auditorium (building #311, section 8 E on map) is a red-brick building with an arched copper roof. It is located behind the peach-yellow-gray Engineering Gateway buildings (#321 and 323 on map). The auditorium now has lettering which says: "Henry Samuelli School of Engineering".
