Below is some important logistical info if you're from off campus, the school wants to keep George Lucas's building nice so we gotta follow the rules:

  • Enter through the doors facing the courtyard, the doors along the street are always locked. During the weekend all of the doors will be locked, but we will prop open atleast one door for you to get in.
  • Please note that we can't promise the jam site will be open through the night. There is a chance you will be able to stay overnight, but please arrange for housing or transportation just in case.
  • Getting on campus after 9PM requires you to be a student or registered online. If you wish to register please email the organizer and we will have a student register you.
