The Libraries have posted driving directions for getting to campus. In addition, a comprehensive overview of travel options is available from the campus office of conference and visitor services. Once you have arrived on campus, this campus map will help you locate the library (#035). There is a College Park metro stop on the green line, which is served by a shuttle bus to campus approximately every 10 minutes.


There is ample parking on campus for a daily maximum of $15.00. A covered guest lot that is convenient to the Library is the Regents Drive Garage (#202 on the map mentioned above). Full information on guest parking options is available on the conference and visitor services site. *Please note*: parking services is very vigilant and quick to ticket, so please make sure that you pay for your parking space at the pay station (look to the signage in the lots for instructions).


The College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, 3501 University Blvd E is the most convenient lodging to the library, and is within an easy 10 minute walk. Other hotels, including some less expensive options, are located on Route 1 on the other side of campus, 1-2 miles away from the library. This map shows some of the nearby options.
