Puget Sound campus map
The following annotated excerpt from the Puget Sound campus map indicates the spaces we will use during the workshop. Please note that north is to the right on the map. Parking is free without permits during the summer.
Getting to the University of Puget Sound
The University of Puget Sound campus is located to the northwest of downtown Tacoma. The campus web site has more complete driving directions. (Follow the "To visit East Side of Campus" directions.) You'll approach Tacoma on I-5, but the specifics depend on whether you're coming from the north or the south:
- At least some versions of Google Maps accept the address 1389-1499 N Lawrence St, Tacoma, WA for a parking lot between the Wheelock Student Center and our rooms in Thomas Hall/Commencement Hall.
Arrival on campus and first events
See the program page for more information about workshop events. (Modified Sunday morning 6/12; minor edits 6/13)
- Come to Thomas Hall (our dorm) when you first arrive on campus. Conference Services will be set up just outside of the Tahoma Room (south end of Thomas Hall on the first floor) to distribute keys between 3-5pm on Monday the 13th. If you arrive after 5pm, you can get your key from Brad Richards (call or text 206-913-7649).
- Note:Thomas Hall (not to be confused with Thompson Hall where we will have sessions) has just been renamed from Commencement Hall in past few weeks, so you might see references on campus to the old name.
1. Tuesday evening "wind-down"
For winding down at the end of the day on Tuesday (or another day), consider a stroll to Engine House No. 9:
2. Wednesday dinner location
The Wednesday evening dinner will take place at Anthony's Restaurant at Point Defiance, about 5 miles north of campus. We will travel to Anthony's in car pools.
