CENIC 2011: Expanding Our Horizons








[CENIC 2011: Hotel & Travel]

At the present time we understand the Irvine Hyatt no longer has rooms available.

For those staying at the Irvine Hyatt, please note there is a complimentary shuttle between the Irvine Hyatt and Orange County airport.

CENIC has also created an Online Carpool App that attendees can use to offer or request rides to and from the hotel and UCI Student Center.


Parking at UC Irvine is at a premium while classes are in session. We have been told that the Student Center Parking Structure directly across from the Student Center fills up by 9am. If you arrive on campus and cannot park in the Student Center Parking Structure, there are more structures a short walk away denoted on the Interactive Parking Map and downloadable PDF map where "SCPS" denotes the Student Center Parking Structure.

Parking on campus is $8 for the whole day or $2/hour for less than 4 hours.
