Directions and Maps


For help locating the Undergraduate Admissions Office, please download our driving directions (PDF).



Your campus visit will last over two hours, and two-hour parking limits along Hill Avenue are strictly enforced by the Pasadena Police Department. Due to construction in the immediate area of Admissions, we strongly encourage visitors to park in Caltech's California Blvd. parking structure: 1248 E California Blvd., Pasadena CA 91125, Campus Map #126 beneath the field south of California Blvd. Be sure to park in an unassigned, numbered space; visitors are not permitted to use spaces marked for faculty or carpool. Available spaces are located on the lower parking levels. The pay station is in the SE corner of the upper level. Permits should be obtained at the pay station and placed visibly on your dashboard. Allow 15 minutes walking time from the parking structure to the Undergraduate Admissions Office (map).

Caltech campus visitors may park in any unreserved stall on campus with a daily or weekly permit. Visitor permits are required for all campus lots between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and may be purchased at automated pay stations within the lots. Parking & Commuter Services can provide details about electric vehicles, carpooling and vanpooling, BikeLab, and the JPL shuttle as well as parking and commuting information.
