The UCI Observatory is located on the outskirts of campus. Although, the UCI Observatory is not marked on the campus map,  it lies south-east of the intersection of Anteater Drive and California Avenue. On Visitor Nights, guest parking is available for $7 in the ICS/Engineering Parking Structure at the corner of East Peltason and Periera Drives. Free shuttle buses will transport you from the parking structure to the entrance of the UCI Observatory road near the corner of California Avenue and Gabrielino Drive. Once the shuttle drops you off at the entrance, a five minute walk along the gravel road will take you to the UCI Observatory dome. Only cars bringing telescope equipment or handicapped guests have access to drive to the entrance of the UCI Observatory.
