We will deliver all boxes received by October 7, 2016 to your assigned table on the morning of the fair but can not guarantee any boxes arriving after that date.  We request that you send no more than 5 boxes as our storage space is limited, and unless discussed beforehand, we cannot keep extra materials after the fair day. This year we will be continuing our special focus on academic discipline-based advising. If you have any materials that show which subject areas are available at your overseas sites, please be sure to bring them.

You are responsible for sending your boxes in a trackable manner so that you know that all of your boxes have arrived.

Arrival Information

Transportation and accommodations

You can reach San Diego by car, by train, or by air. If you drive, we recommend coming south the evening before and spending the night in San Diego. Be sure to identify yourself as a UC San Diego visitor when making hotel reservations to qualify for the special rates (subject to change) on the list.

If you are driving yourself, we encourage you to arrive at UCSD between 8:00 and 9:30 a.m. to allow yourself ample time for unloading matierals, parking, check-in, and set-up of your table. One parking permit is included in your fee.  Program partners who are familiar with UC San Diego's campus and prefer to park elsewhere at their own expense will be able to check in at the Price Center West Ballroom.  Please note, however, that parking is VERY limited now because of campus construction and we HIGHLY recommend arriving to campus closer to the 8:00am.

Avoid having to arrive early to park by ridesharing or taking a taxi...

Take an Uber, Lyft, or call a taxi (book one here:  http://www.lajollaexpressride.com/ ).  Your destination for your driver should be the intersection of Rupertus Way and Russell Lane, La Jolla, 92093.  There you will find the Exhibitor Breakfast and alternate check-in within University Center 409 - Dance Hall on Russell Lane.  Search "University Center 409" on the map here: http://maps.ucsd.edu/mapping/viewer/default.htm.
