Getting to CMU from Your Hotel

Most of the hotels have shuttle transportation to CMU available. This is NOT a direct shuttle to CMU and will make other stops in Oakland based on customer needs. If you do choose to use the hotel shuttle, please request that you be dropped off at the RMCIC Building.

PARKING

While we assume most of you will use the shuttle PDL will provide, there are parking machines on Schenley Drive, Frew Street, and Tech Street which are all very near to Roberts Hall. They accept currency and credit cards; it is $3.00 / hour and uses your license plate as the timing factor.There is also parking in the RMCIC Building Garage - P19 on the general campus map (closest) or the East Campus Garage - P7 on the map (further walk but more familiar to some of our guests). Some past attendees have also used the parking lot at the nearby Carnegie Museum (also shown on the map).

If you park in one of the above mentioned areas, particularly Schenley Drive, Frew Street, or Tech Street, please see this map for the Roberts Hall entry location/drop-off point or this map of campus.
