Maps & Directions
Google maps has a great interactive map of the City that can be overlaid with satellite imagery. It can also produce an address for all points of interest as well as routes to get there. The University is on the Westside directly across the river. The city also has a simpler Map with an annotative legend. Contact our office and we would be happy to help you plan your visit.
Almost every corner of the city is reachable within a 15 minute drive. Taxi service or rental vehicles (Budget, Hertz, National) are available if you don't have your own transportation. A trip from the Airport to the University is about a 20 minute ride and around $23-$25 in cab fare. The community transit system is another way to get around and offers service to most areas seven days a week. For routes and schedules see LA Transit.
Visitors can choose to stay in a Hotel or Bed & Breakfast, each offering a wide range of amenities. Based on the location and amenities/services offered, prices can range from $70 for a basic room to $140+ for an executive suite. In the summer University Conference & Event Services has nightly rates, as low as $35 for furnished apartments. Check the following links for current rates and availability:
