Important Reminders
The Campus Center Parking Garage is now automated!

If you are a commuter, take a gate ticket, park, and bring your gate ticket in with you. When you check-in at the registration desk you will be provided with a parking coupon for each day of the program. As you leave each day you will need to stop at a pay station. Enter your gate ticket in the pay station and, when prompted, scan the QR code on the parking coupon. This will validate your gate ticket without requiring any payment. As you drive out of the garage enter your validated gate ticket to raise the gate. Note: there is a Parking Services Office located on the 2nd level of the garage, right at the entrance to the Campus Center. If you experience any difficulty with the parking pass or pay station, please stop by the Parking Services Office for assistance.

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 gate ticket for the duration of your stay. You will not need to stop at a pay station.

On-Campus and Area Lodging Reservations
Registration does not include lodging and reservations/payment for lodging must be arranged separately from registration. A block of discounted rooms is being held at Hotel UMass, located right in the Campus Center, or a rate of $135/room/night (plus applicable fees). The hotel is currently at capacity. Interested attendees may visit www.hotelumass.com to check for availability in the event of cancellations (reference group code MMA19C).
