Event location and facilities
Getting to the event from within San Luis
From the hotels near campus, walk up Monterey Street to Grand Avenue (or directly to Grand Avenue), and follow Grand Avenue until the intersection with S Perimeter (this is an L-shaped intersection). Continue on pedestrian-only walkway between building 1 (Administration) and building 65 (McPhee University Union) and you will arrive at building 25.

There is a large parking ramp near the south entrance to campus which can be found by searching on "Pacheco Way, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405".

A large construction project this summer will have Grand Ave closed after the parking structure, so if you wish to park elsewhere on campus, you will need to study this information: http://granddetour.calpoly.edu/

Getting to San Luis from elsewhere
Santa Maria Public Airport (airport code SMX) occasionally offers better deals than SBP, but Santa Maria is at least 40min drive from San Luis. It is possible to take the train.
Los Angeles International Airport (airport code LAX) always has the cheapest ticket prices, but is widely reknowned for being awkward to approach by ground transportation. The FlyAway Bus goes directly to Union Station, which offers train service to San Luis. The bus ride from LAX to Union Station (downtown LA) can take 35-180min, depending on traffic.
