LOCATION AND DIRECTIONS
(Campus Information)

The Symposium will be held entirely in the Bioscience Research Building.

DRIVING

From I-270 take the 495-beltway inner loop east to exit 25B (College Park).
From I-95 follow the signs for U.S. 1, South (from I-95 southbound the exit number is 27, which will take you to exit 25B from the inner loop). 
At the end of the (long) exit ramp, make a right turn (south) onto Route 1 (Baltimore Ave). 
Go south on U.S. 1 / Baltimore Ave. about 2.3 miles. Turn right on Campus Dr. (the main entrance to campus). Take your first right (Paint Branch Dr.). Then take your first left (at Stadium Dr., a stop sign) and then go through the next stop sign and turn left into the garage.
Go up to the roof (lot 5), where parking is free this week (because we are in intersession)
Directions from Baltimore (Google) detail the interchange at 495 and your turns on campus.

RAIL

The DC Metro serves the University of Maryland at the College Park stop on the Green line.

The metro station is a 20 minute walk from the Bioscience Research Building. There is also a shuttle bus (schedule: PDF).

Amtrak: - From New Carrollton (NCR), take a cab or arrange a ride (about 15-20 minutes drive) or take Metro (Orange line to the Green line; change at L'enfant).
From Union Station (WAS), take a cab (20-25 minutes) or Metro (Red line to the Green line). New Carrollton is slightly closer. Union Station is much nicer. Most trains stop at both stations, and the ticket price is the same.
