Accomodations and Directions

Course Location

The Shortcourse will take place in Stocking Hall at Cornell University (411 Tower Road, Ithaca, NY 14853).  Educational sessions will be held in PepsiCo Auditorium and lunch will be held in the conference center.

Parking on Campus

Parking on the Cornell University is restricted to permit or payment at all times.  Parking for this event is available near Stocking Hall in the TRB lot, B lot and Peterson lot.  

Advance-Purchase Conference Parking Permits (recommended)

Prior to traveling to campus, we recommend that you purchase a parking permit for the TRB lot or B lot.  To purchase online, click here Click the "Find Parking" button near the Anaerobic Digestion Process Fundamentals Shortcourse option.  Complete the reservation process, pay via credit card, and receive a link to a printable parking permit. Print the parking permit and bring it with you to campus. When you arrive at your specified parking lot, display your printed permit on your dash.  Parking cost is $14.00 which includes all fees and taxes for both days of the course.

Alternative Parking Option

If you do not pay for parking in advance, you will need to purchase a permit once you arrive on campus.  We recommend using Parkmobile, a pay-by-cell mobile application, for convenient payment.  You may choose to pay at hourly parking rates for TRB lot or B lot ($.75 per hour or $6 per day) or Peterson Lot ($1.50 an hour or $10.00 per day). Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
