Please go to the Holliston Parking Structure and obtain a permit. Park only in spaces that do not have a marked name on the cement slab at the head of the parking space (a slab with just a number is OK). Most parking on the streets surrounding Caltech is for two hours only (enforced!), so we recommend you find a day-long spot in any of the campus parking lots.




We have a limited number of travel grants for students and postdoctoral scholars interested in presenting posters. These will be awarded on a competitive basis. If you would like to apply for one of these, please send your half-page poster abstract, contact information, and a brief letter of recommendation from your faculty advisor directly to Earlier applications will be given precendence.

California bistro, accepts credit cards, located in the Avery Building at the north east corner of campus

Cafe at Broad

Off campus, walking west along Del Mar will lead you to many spots along Lake Avenue (Baja Fresh, Corner Bakery, etc.)
