  • Parking is FREE!! Attendants will be giving out free permits on Saturday 9am to 5pm in Lot 1. Please tell the parking attendant you are attending geekOUTucr and you will be given a free parking permit for the day.
  • Parking Reciprocity – UCR extends parking privileges to visitors owning a valid faculty or staff commuter parking permit from other UC campuses. A one-day permit can be obtained at no charge from an Information Kiosk attendant.
  • UPDATE - Disabled Parking – A disabled visitor may park in any disabled parking space displaying a DMV-issued disabled parking placard AND a UCR perking permit.
Air Travel:

Ontario International Airport (ONT) is 17 miles from UCR, and by far the easiest airport to fly into. Also, Southwest Airlines offers direct service between many cities and Ontario.
