Transportation between the Hotel and the Seaside Forum

The hotel is about a fifteen minute walk from the Scripps Seaside Forum, and we will also have a shuttle available to transport meeting participants from the hotel to the forum and back — see Shuttles, below.


At the Scripps Forum there is no public parking lot and the Scripps Institute of Oceanography (SIO) parking lots require SIO-specific UCSD parking permits.

We suggest attendees who are driving park at Kellogg Park, a public park at the beach (see our map) that is about a 10 minute walk from the meeting space. We will have a shuttle pick up from this parking lot, at the entrance (see shuttle schedule below).

For UCSD parking permit holders, there is also a UCSD shuttle between campus and SIO that you can take if you wish to park on campus. Make sure to allow sufficient time. See Shuttles, below. You can also park in the Birch Aquarium parking lot with a UCSD permit which is a 5-10 minute walk.

For those who arrive early there is also some nearby street parking available.


For those meeting attendees who prefer to ride a shuttle we will have a shuttle pick up passengers at the hotel (1) and at the Kellogg Park parking lot (2):

  1. At the La Jolla Shores Hotel, 8110 Camino Del Oro (at Avenida de la Playa).
  2. At Kellogg Park entrance corner of Camino del Oro and Calle Frescota (free public parking lot).
