Shaping up the Week
ILiADS provides focused team project time with intermittent opportunities for networking with colleagues and collectively charting the future of this community. In general, days will be structured around morning and afternoon sessions with your team, "pop-up" workshops based on need and interest, and early evening community conversations, and invited panels and guests. We aim to offer you a supportive environment for making progress on your projects while also creating a dynamic and sustained forum for discussing broader questions of digital scholarship in liberal arts settings.
How to get to Occidental
LAX is the largest airport and is located about 27 miles from campus. Travel times can be anywhere from 35 minutes to 2 hours depending on time of day (TIP: don’t arrive during rush hour!). The smaller Burbank-Hollywood Airport is only 11 miles away and more convenient to get in and out of. For train enthusiasts, the Amtrak station is located at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, about 10 miles away. From there the campus can be reached via the Metro light rail (Gold Line) + short taxi ride.

Alternative Places to Stay
If you prefer to stay off-campus, there are a couple of nearby motels in the Eagle Rock community and a decent stock of Airbnb rentals nearby. Further afar, you will find hotels in both Pasadena and Glendale. Commuting to the campus from either of these adjacent communities will take somewhere between 15-30 minutes depending on where your hotel is located.
