Directions and parking
Another map with an arrow that indicates MS 4000A.
Follow the long arrow from the top right corner to find MS 4000A.
Charles E Young Dr S & Westwood Plz, Los Angeles, CA 90095;
that spot is the parking kiosk on Westwood Blvd, next to Parking Lot 9.
At the parking kiosk,
tell the attendant that you are going to attend the event "SoCal"
and that you have heard that parking spots have been reserved in
Parking Lot 9.
Pay $8 and park.
Relative to Parking Lot 9, the meeting room MS 4000A is on the opposite side
of Boelter Hall and Math Science,
by the little courtyard between Math Science and Kerckhoff Hall.
To get there from Parking Lot 9,
one can either walk around the buildings
or walk through Boelter Hall and Math Science.
One enters MS 4000A from the courtyard.
