Directions and Parking: if coming from I25 (either direction), exit at
Martin Luther King boulevard and go East (toward the mountains) past
University, and then turn right on Redondo boulevard which runs around
the campus. After Redondo turns to the East you will see a big white building
(PAIS) to the west of Popejoy Auditorium. There are two parking spaces, 199
and 200, directly south of PAIS that can be reserved. You should have been
told which parking space to use. No parking sticker or sign is needed.
If both spots are filled then pay parking is available on Redondo or in the
parking structure to the east of PAIS off of Redondo.
