To register please come to the on-site registration desk, open from 8 - 9 a.m. on Monday, August 6th, on the 1st floor concourse of the UMass Campus Center
Arrival and On-Site Registration
On-site registration will be held on Monday, August 6th, from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. on the 1st floor concourse of the UMass Campus Center. After arriving on campus, enter the Campus Center and take the escalators down to the 1st floor (the entrance of the Campus Center is on the 2nd floor and the Hotel lobby is on the 3rd floor). The on-site registration desk will be located at the base of the escalators outside of the Campus Center Auditorium. The General Welcome will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. on Monday so we encourage you to arrive early so you have plenty of time to obtain your course materials and, if necessary, a parking pass to the Campus Center Garage (see below). Attendees who arrive after the on-site registration has closed may come to the Conference Registration Office located in room 810 on the 8th floor of the Campus Center to pick up all materials (open from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday).
Parking is available in the Campus Center Parking Garage. For GPS purposes, the garage is located at 1 Campus Center Way, Amherst, MA, 01003 (click here to obtain directions from your location). Campus Center Way is off of Commonwealth Avenue, across the street from the Mullins Center. After turning onto Campus Center Way stay to the left to go up the hill. You will see the garage entrance on your right. Take a gate ticket and park. We recommend following the Hotel UMass/Campus Center signs down to park on Level 2, where there is a marked entrance into the Campus Center. Alternatively, you can park on any level and use the Northeast or Southeast Stairwells to gain access to outdoor campus paths that lead down to the Campus Center.
New this year - the garage has switched to a pay station system!
If you are a commuter, take a gate ticket, park, and pick up your a parking coupon for each day of your registration when you check-in at the registration desk. As you leave each day you will need to stop at a pay station with this coupon and the gate ticket you received as you drove in to the garage. Enter your gate ticket in the pay station and, when prompted, scan the QR code on your parking coupon. This will validate your gate ticket. As you drive out of the garage enter your validated gate ticket to raise the gate. If you are staying at Hotel UMass, take a gate ticket, park, and bring your gate ticket in with you. You will pick-up your programming materials at the registration desk, but you will receive your parking pass when you check-in at the hotel (available after 3 p.m. on your day of arrival). At hotel check-in give the desk clerk your gate ticket - they will then validate your pass for the duration of your stay, so you will not need to stop at a pay station.
