Location, Parking, and Directions 

Given extensive campus construction, it is encouraged that guests enter the UMD Campus via Baltimore Ave (US Rt. 1) and follow Campus Drive to the Stamp Student Union for drop-off.  

*Please plan ahead and be patient regarding travel on campus, given the ongoing purple line construction and HEAVY student foot traffic during the morning hours. Navigating campus during this time will take a significant amount of time.

A parking attendant will be on location to verify your organization and gain entry into Union Lane Garage. The parking attendant will present you with a PAID parking permit to validate your parking. Once Union Lane Garage is filled, you will be directed to Regents Drive Garage---a secondary location reserved for the fair.

College Park, MD 20742

If the garage reaches capacity, the parking attendants will redirect you to an alternate parking location.

Those bringing fair materials may stop to drop off materials with student volunteers at the side door of the Stamp before parking.

*If you do not receive a permit from a parking attendant, you are in the wrong lot and may receive a parking citation. The Department of Computer Science does not reimburse for parking violations.*
