  • Public Transit:
  • Car:
    • The University can also be reached by car, taking the main entrance off of Route 1 towards the Main Campus circle.  The Chemistry Building is reached by taking the first right 1/4 way around the main circle, and it is the second building on the right hand side.  There is a parking garage on the left hand side, but this requires special passes.  We recommend taking a right hand turn on the crossroad just past the Chemistry building, following this road to its end, taking a left hand turn and following this road to the pay parking lot on the left.
  • Air: 
    • The Washington area has three airports.  Reagan National and BWI are about 30-45 minutes away.  Dulles is about 1 to 1.5 hours away depending on traffic.  Reagan National Airport can be reached by metro.  BWI can be reached by a BUS to Metro connection, cab, or shuttle.  Dulles airport can be reached by Metro/Bus or a 2-2.5 hour trip or by cab or shuttle.
