Directions: Located just outside of Washington, D.C., College Park is approximately 10 miles from Capitol Hill. To reach the campus from the Capital Beltway, exit at interchange 25B/Route 1 South. You will be on Route 1 (south) for about 2 miles. Make a right (at the traffic light at the main entrance of the University) onto Campus Drive and after 40 yards another right onto Paint Branch Drive. The Engineering Classroom Building will be on your left. Free parking for arrivals before 11am will be available on the right hand side (look out for an attendant). As you enter into the 11/G Lot area you will see the reserved meters on your right. The talks will be in Room 1202, Judith Resnik Lecture Hall, in the Engineering Classroom Building (building 88 on the campus map). You may need additional directions if coming from out of town.
