Chico Topology Conference

Travel & Accommodations


By Air: If you’re flying to Chico, you’ll need to travel via San Francisco. An alternative is to fly to Sacramento and then use the North Valley Shuttle.


By Car: Chico is on Highway 99, which meets the I-5 at Red Bluff to the north and the I-80 at Sacramento to the south.  Your best bet is to park at your hotel and walk to campus.  To reach the hotels, from Highway 99 take the Highway 32 exit towards Orland (west).  This will put you on 8th street, which passes the hotels near Broadway.


Local Directions: The talks will be in Holt Hall, which is on the CSU, Chico campus.  To get there from the hotel, walk north on Broadway, crossing over 1st Street into the Children’s park (to the right of the church).  Continue walking north through the park and then follow the creek to the left.  Walk past the amphitheatre that faces onto the creek.  Crossing the next bridge over the creek will leave you in front of Holt Hall.

The program begins after lunch on Friday, May 2 and concludes about the same time on Sunday, May 4.




We are recommending the following two motels, which are close to one another. Both are easy walking distance to Holt Hall, site of the talks. Eldon Vought has reserved a block of rooms in each, and would be happy to provide you with one. Contact him at .

We can also recommend the Hotel Diamond and two B&B’s. Although a little more expensive, they are also very close to Holt Hall.
