I suggest parking along Richards Road or in the lot behind the Lokey Graduate School of Business. Here’s the Mills Campus Map. On the map, the library is listed as “F.W. Olin Library” at #31.

I’m organizing a Bart station Carpool pick-up from Macarthur Bart (12 minute drive to Mills) with two pick up times, 9:15 and 9:30am. If you’d like a ride from the Bart Station or if you’d like to volunteer to pick up some attendees at Bart, please email me ( ). Let me know if you have any questions!

Hope to see you there!
