On-Campus Accommodation: We have reserved a number of on-campus rooms for the entire duration of the program. The rooms are in 3- or 4-bedroom apartments. Each room is a single room, and each apartment has 2 bathrooms. Participants can book rooms in apartments on a 2-person / apartment basis (full price), so that each person has their own bathroom, or on a 3- or 4-person / apartment basis (reduced price), in which case the bathroom is shared. The apartments are located very close to the program venue. The campus rooms have wired internet access. The rooms will be furnished and bed linen is provided. On campus parking, conference registration and all meals, will be provided in the booking package.
Off-Campus Accommodation: Off-Campus accomodation will be possible in selected Santa Cruz Hotels. A list will be posted here later. Typical prices in this period of the year are about $140/night. Registration to the conference, campus meals and parking will be charged to the participant separately.
The Santa Cruz Campus
The Santa Cruz campus is located in an idyllic setting between the ocean and the Santa Cruz mountains, at the edge of the town of Santa Cruz. The campus is on a steep hill, with the central part of the campus (Science Hill) located about 1 mile from the campus main entrance.
Travel to and from Campus from town: The campus is served by a regular bus service from the town of Santa Cruz, as well as on-campus bus shuttles. The local bus routes can be found from the Metro Santa Cruz web-page. The bus shuttles run every 15-20 minutes from the base of campus to Science Hill.
Parking: Parking on campus for program participants who are staying downtown is not free, and can be purchased every day at the campus entrance.
