Santa Clara University maintains two large parking structures and dozens of smaller parking lots around campus. To park on University-owned property, every vehicle must have a valid parking permit visibly displayed between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Friday. A permit is not required on Saturday, Sunday, or University holidays. Daily permits are available from the Main Gate kiosk, which is located at the University's main entrance. To print/view a PDF of permit locations, Click here.

The closest parking to the conference is the North Campus Parking Structure on Benton Street, between Alviso Street and The Alameda. Parking on Friday is $5 for the day (credit card only) and it's free on Saturday and Sunday.
