Directions

Important Items:


1) Getting to Foothill College
The Physics Show is held at our main campus in Los Altos (El Monte exit off Hwy 280).
Directions and maps are located on our website:  www.foothill.edu/news/maps

2) Parking (Included in your ticket price)
As you enter the campus make your first right turn into parking lot 1. If you miss that turn, make your second right into parking lot 1.  To take advantage of the included parking fee you must park in lot 1.  Parking in any other lot requires a permit which costs $3.  Yes, they do ticket on the weekends. 

3) Smithwick Theater
The Physics Show will be held in Smithwick Theater, room 1000.  From parking lot 1, walk across the loop road and up the long flight of stairs. Smithwick Theater will be on your left at the top of the stairs.


4) The Show
We are aiming for a 75 minute show.


5) Wheel-Chair Access

There is a long flight of stairs from parking lot 1 to the theater.  If you have a passenger that will require special access here is the best option.  Make a left off the loop road at the first bus stop, go past the bookstore receiving dock and up the steep hill until you cannot go any farther.  Drop your passenger off, this is the closest you can get a car to the theater.  Go park your car in lot 1.

If the driver requires no stair access, park in lot 8 or lot 5.  Lot 8 is closer, but requires two elevators.  Lot 5 is farther, but requires no elevators.  With a DMV issued placard for "handicapped" parking you may park in any lot on campus without a permit.


See you at The Physics Show!
