The meeting is in the 2nd floor lounge of Winnett Center, which is building 51 on the Caltech Map. Winnett center and several likely parking spots are noted on the map. We recommend you park either in the California Blvd. parking lot (South of campus) or in the new parking structure on Wilson Ave. (East of campus), or in the new Holliston Ave. parking lot (West side of campus). In the parking lots, park only in unmarked parking spaces, otherwise you're likely to get ticketed or towed. It's less than 5 minutes walk from either lot to Winnett center.
