Event information


The only public parking in the area is street parking. You can take the 51A bus up Broadway or down College to get to CCA campus; the Rockridge BART station is also a 15-minute walk away. If you enter the main gates of the campus on Broadway, you'll shortly come upon a campus map. Here's a PDF of the map; Meyer Library is in Founder's Hall on the west side of the campus.
