About Parking

Complementary parking available at the Health Sciences Parking Structure (HSPS). It is a brand new structure so it is not yet on google maps but the entrance is next to the address for the Sue Gross Auditorium. There will be a parking attendant who will direct you at the entrance to the structure.

Google Link to Google Maps directions. 

**UCI attendees (w/ Campus Parking Permits): if you are parking in the HSPS structure, please notify the attendant you are a UCI attendee with a pre-paid permit. This is to minimize cost for the meeting.
