FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The event will be held at UPMC Mercy in the Sr. Ferdinand Clark Auditorium, Building C, 2nd Floor. Attendees may park in the Locust Street Garage (the first two hours are free). Please note that there is currently a great deal of construction occurring on Locust Street but there are posted detours to lead you around to the Forbes street entrance of the same garage. We will update this if construction changes by June 22nd.

From the garage, come across the pedestrian bride (on Level D). Go strait ahead to the purple elevators and go up one floor. Turn right out of the elevators and come down the hall toward the cafeteria. The Clark Auditorium will be on the right hand side of the hall before the cafeteria.
