From Interstate 80 (either the Bay Area or Sacramento), take the “UC Davis” exit (), and head North on Old Davis Road.
From State Highway 113 (from Woodland), head South and merge with I-80. On the flyover, be sure to be in the right-hand lane and take the UC Davis exit. Turn left onto Old Davis Road.
Once on Old Davis Road, it will curve and go straight through the traffic circle, past one light (a 3-way intersection), two stop sign intersections, at which point look for Parking Lot 5a (and Lot 5 on the right side of the road).
From Parking Lot 5—which is the lot we recommend—to the front doors of the Ann E. Pitzer Center, walk along Old Davis Road until you reach Hutchison Drive, then turn left and walk past the Ceramics Laboratory (“TB-9″). There are signs posted occasionally on the ground of the sidewalks giving directions.
Parking is $9 per day during the weekdays only and when special events staff are present on the weekends. During the weekdays, the passes acquired from yellow service boxes are only valid in Lot 5 (southeast side of Old Davis Road) in “C” designated spaces until 5:00 pm.
In Apple maps, use “Ann E. Pitzer Center, Hutchison Dr & Cushing Way, Davis, CA 95616.”
