***If you plan on using your GPS or google maps to come to campus, I would recommend putting in the following address: 5530 Marian Way. This will take you to the West entrance and fairly close to our building.

Parking Instructions…Parking for Friday and Saturday will be in two different locations. In each instance everyone should enter through the West Entrance.

Friday Parking for Attendees:

Attendees should park in the West Parking Structure. All day parking passes are available for $8 a day on Friday (debit/credit cards accepted).  Meters are available throughout the parking structure (next to elevators) and in front of the tram station. The tram (the on-campus shuttle service) will pick attendees up from in front of the parking structure every 15 minutes and drop them off directly in front of the conference building (Mother Rosalie Hill Hall).

For additional parking information attendees can go to:

Parking Information – Parking services

Parking Services is changing its payment process from “pay by space number” to “pay by license plate.” This means that those using metered parking will enter their vehicle license plate number, rather than the parking space number painted on the ground. As a result, there will be no need to display a permit on the vehicle’s dashboard.  New signage will remind people of this new procedure, including the suggestion to take a picture of the license plate number for easy recall during the payment process at the parking pay station.

Saturday Parking for Attendees:

Park in Mother Rosalie Hill Hall Parking Garage, also known as the SOLES parking garage.

  • When on Linda Vista Rd., travel to the first stoplight to USD’s West entrance, turn left and enter campus.
