Campus Map

Where do I park?
On the West Campus where the conference is taking place, park in Lot G or Lot H.  Avoid any spots marked Faculty/Staff.

I’m staying in the dorms.  Where should I park?

Please come to Registration on the West Campus first, to check-in and receive your keys. (You should probably leave your luggage in the car while you come to Registration.)  Then proceed to East Campus.

On the East Campus, you can Park in Lot A, the big main lot on your left upon entering the East Campus.  If you are assigned to the “Mods” you may park near your unit.  Do not park in Lot D (adjacent to Engstrom Hall), which is for APU Staff only.


What is the registration price at the door?
$149 – On-Site Registration

How do I get the One Day Rate?
Enter Promotional Code “THUonly”, “FRIonly,” or “SATonly” as appropriate to display the $75 one-day rate.

Cancellation/Transfer Policy: If you cannot attend, your registration is transferable to another person, but it is not refundable. (If you have also reserved dorm housing, please note you will need to cancel/change your housing separately from your registration.)  The replacement person can just show up at the check-in desk and tell the check-in volunteer who they are replacing.

What’s included in the registration price?
The price includes all workshops and general sessions, plus a Saturday grab-and-go Breakfast, and Saturday Lunch.  All other meals are on your own, and there are several restaurants within walking distance.

Minors:  Due to Azusa Pacific University Policy, we must prohibit ALL minors from attending the conference unless they are accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

Do I need a car during my stay in Azusa?
If you’re staying in the dorms, the conference is less than a mile walk from your dorm room, and we will provide a shuttle between campuses, with limited hours of operation.  If you have limited mobility or want more flexibility in your schedule, you might consider a rental car.

If you’re staying at a local hotel, we recommend a car.  The Fairfield Inn West Covina is a 16 minute, 5.4 mile drive.  Uber would cost approximately $8-12 each way but rates can vary at peak times.
