Public Transit:The University of Maryland College Park is located roughly 1 mile from the College Park metro station on the Green Line. Upon exiting the metro station, you can proceed to the closest bus bay on your left. The Campus Shuttle bus #104 picks up roughly every 10 minutes between 7 am and 10 pm. You should ride the shuttle until it terminates at the last station (across from the Stamp student union.) Upon exiting the bus, turn left and immediately left again to head downhill to the central quad. McKeldin Library will be on your right at the end of the quad. If you would prefer to take a taxi to campus, you can board a taxi behind the College Park Metro Station parking garage.

Public Parking: Visitor parking is primarily available in four parking garages and two surface lots which have been converted to pay by space digital pay stations. Current rates are $3.00 per hour, with a $15.00 per day maximum. For visiting the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, we encourage you to park in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage located adjacent to the Football stadium. If you will be attending both the symposium and the closing dinner, we encourage you to park at the Union Lane Garage to enable you to avoid walking across campus after dark.
