Parking on campus for the PDC

Parking on the MIIS campus is limited, but the following are helpful hints in locating parking for the conference:

  • We will have open parking in all Institute lots on the days of the conference, on a first-come, first-served basis. We will have signs at the entrances to each Institute parking lot that day identifying as available for PDC Conference parking.
  • There are three City of Monterey parking lots around our campus: parking lot 4 at the corner of Van Buren and Franklin, parking lot 8 in front of Casa Fuente, and parking lot 7, which is across Pacific Street. Lots 4 and 7 have ticket machines. Lot 8 is a partially metered lot.
  • The campus map shows both Institute parking and City parking lots 4 & 8. City parking lot 7 is not shown, but it is directly across Pacific Street from Casa Fuente (Building #18 on the campus map).
  • If you are staying at a near-by hotel, you are encouraged to leave your car parked at the hotel and walk the four short blocks to the MIIS campus.
  • There is one- and two-hour parking available on the streets around the Institute campus. Please be aware that the time limit is strictly enforce and could result in a $35 ticket. Conference participants are encouraged to park in the parking lots, rather than on the street.
