to Get to Here
BWI Airport is about 10 miles
south of Baltimore. Look for the blue circle on the map. It's
very close to College Park, only about 30 minutes door-to-door by rental
car. The airport has rentals, even a train!
To get to College Park
from BWI, you head west on 195 (there's only one way to go on 195 anyway)
to Route 95 South towards Washington, D.C. The red highway which encircles
the city is called the "Washington Beltway". It's about 20 or 25 miles
from BWI on 95S.
Once you get near the Beltway,
you will have to find your way to Route 1 South. The map shows that you
have to exit, head east for a bit, then get off at Route 1. As you leave
95, the exit signs point you to either east (95) or west (495). Take the
west exit (right lane), but as soon as the road bifurcates, get into the
left lane and follow the signs to "Route 1 South College Park". When you
get to the Route1 exit, take south. In the map, the blue square labeled
"1" is where you need to go.
The best, most convenient hotel,
is the Best Western. The map shows it as a small black square, across the
street and north a bit from campus. The address is 8601 Baltimore Boulevard
(that's Route 1), and the phone number is 301-474-2800. Be sure to ask
for the University of Maryland rate, it should be about $66/nite plus tax.
The following campus map shows
Route 1 (lower left, Baltimore Blvd). From the hotel, head towards
campus (away from the highway), turn right at Campus Drive. It's
not very far, a large traffic interestection. Take Campus up to a
traffic circle (see the large "M" in the upper left corner of the
picture), the Physics Department is right there to the right on the circle.
It's marked "82" in the map. Turn right on Regents Drive,
you can park in the parking garage you'll see on the left.
