The competition is being held in the Union Building at the University of Utah. Once inside, you will want to go straight until you see a trophy case. Take a right after the trophy case and then a left to make it to the venue.

There are busses to get to the Union Building through the UTA busses. The UTA is very cheap public transportation.

Here's the UTA website!
Here is a map of the busses. The blue and green busses on the map will take you to the Union Building.

Food is not supposed to be eaten inside the venue and the food court is closed on weekends. There are sometimes food trucks outside, but the information is not disclosed with anyone until the day of the events. You may eat in the Union Building (as far as I'm aware), just not inside the room the competition is held in.

There is a place at Lassonde (I think it's a 5 minute walk each way from the venue) that offers some food (it's been a while since I've been there, but I know they have at least snacks). There are other places nearby off campus, but they aren't walkable. Since food is further away, you may want to find someone who's not competing in 5x5 to grab something for you.

The Pie Pizzeria does deliver to the campus and is located pretty closely. I've also seen Dominoes get delivered.

Time limit

If you reach the time limit during your solve, the judge will stop you and your result will be DNF (see Regulation A1a4).

Cutoff

The result to beat to proceed to the second phase of a combined round (see Regulation 9g).

Format

The format describes how to determine the ranking of competitors based on their results. The list of allowed formats per event is described in Regulation 9b. See Regulation 9f for a description of each format.
