Parking/Getting Around
Please note: Recent changes on the UAlbany campus have altered parking options from past years. We suggest using the first visitor lot on the right as you enter Collins circle, seen as a “v” in he beige background on this interactive map, http://www.albany.edu/content_images/ualbany-campus-map.pdf.  Mousing over the bottom allows you to enlarge the map at the plus sign. That is the only lot with a human attendant.  Parking is also available at the other  pay lots, also with beige backgrounds on the map, by credit card.  Additional parking information is available at http://www.albany.edu/about/about_visiting_maps_and_directions.php.  Due to ongoing construction in the area of the Campus Center and Science Library, some of the usual walking routes may be inaccessible. See http://www.albany.edu/facilities/fp/campuscenter.html for details.

Registration and most conference sessions are in the Science Library, Building 14 on the map. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at resrchny@albany.edu.
