Receiving a parking permit

Tell the attendant at the booth that you are attending the "Planning PR Day" and you will be issued a general  all day parking permit. With this permit, you may park in any unmarked spot. The presentation room is in the Social & Behavioral Sciences Gateway building, which will be within sight across a grassy area on your right as you walk out of the parking garage on to campus.

2010-11 Professional Reports

Each year, UCI students in our MURP program conduct Professional Report projects as part of their graduation requirements. The Professional Report is an opportunity for students to spend approximately 6 months working on an independent, real world planning project.

Students work on a wide range of issues, including land use planning, urban design, environmental planning, community and economic development, housing, international planning, transportation planning, and others. Each student works with a faculty mentor and a professional client. The client provides real world expertise connected to the project. Students conduct the projects "pro bono"; there is no cost to clients for having students conduct a project for their firm or agency.
