Venue

Location

We are once again pleased to announce InfoCamp will be hosted by the UW Information School in Mary Gates Hall on the University of Washington Seattle campus. The modern facility features a two-story interior commons surrounded by spacious classrooms.
Registration will be held on the main floor in the Commons.

Parking

Parking will be $10.00 at the Central Plaza Garage (the closest lot to Kane Hall). The price for parking on the rest of campus is $5.00 on Saturdays. Pay at the gatehouse located just inside the Central Plaza Garage through Gate 1. After 12 noon Saturday and all day Sunday parking is free on campus. A little side note – UWPD does manage the campus on those days and can issue citations to individuals who are parked incorrectly for example – a non disability vehicle parked in a disability space, or vehicles that are parked in restricted lots or areas that are not designated parking spaces. Commuter Services Operations at UW has been notified that our event is taking place and you should be directed to park with minimal confusion.

WiFi

Yes, there is a good wifi connection throughout the building. Participants will be given wifi access information at check-in.
