When you arrive at the Double Tree Berkeley Marina before 10AM on Friday July 19th, you will be directed to a secure room to store your luggage.
You will be able to pick up your luggage and officially check in to the hotel that night after the sessions at Haas are complete, at approximately 9PM.
Students who reside ‘Outside of the Bay Area’ (OOBA) which is defined the nine counties that directly border on San Francisco Bay: San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, and Marin Counties, will be eligible to request arriving on Thursday at no expense to the student. Please note that the room accommodations are the exact same as those arriving Friday, which means double occupancy with a classmate.
The Program Office will start contacting those eligible students around late May/early June to gather those requests from incoming students. Eligibility is gathered and checked based on the address provided at the time of admittance.
We will communicate with you as we get closer to the event with any further information about the check-in process.
