The entrance to the hall is between buildings 410 and 405, at the lower
level under the bridge, in front of the Pyramid cafeteria.

Parking is outside the campus. When coming from the Bar Ilan
interchange on Geha Highway (Highway 4) turn left at the traffic light
and then keep going straight after passing the Bar Ilan main gate. The
first parking lot will soon be on your left, from which there is a
pedestrian gate that is quite close to the Beck Hall. If this lot is
full the next parking lot is further down the road, on the right. If
you have special parking needs please indicate in the registration
email that you need a guest parking permit, which is closer to the
hall.
