CUSP will be held in 370 Dwinelle Hall. Dwinelle Hall is large and notoriously difficult to navigate. Please see these maps (ground level, upper level) to locate Room 370 within the building. (Experienced CUSPers will note that CUSP 11 is in the same location as was CUSP 6.)
The UC Berkeley campus is easily accessible by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transport). Use the Downtown Berkeley station.
Parking can be difficult on and around campus, and will be especially restricted on Saturday due to a football game. Those who arrive relatively early on Saturday (say by 10am) should be able to find parking in any of the public lots near the campus. Note that it will not be possible to park on campus itself on Saturday as the lots are reserved for those with football parking permits. On Sunday, you may be able to park behind Dwinelle Hall and pay for a permit at the yellow machine.
A final note: there is street and metered parking near the University, but be diligent about reading parking restrictions, as the regulations and schedules are strictly enforced by the City of Berkeley.
