Attached is a PDF campus map. The campus is located at the corner of Campus Way and HWY 202 (Largo Rd). The best exit from 495 is 15A to get onto HWY 214. Follow signs to Upper Marlboro which will put you on 202 headed South. You can  enter the campus by either going through the traffic intersection (Campus Way & 202) and making the first right turn after the light or turn right at the light onto Campus Way - make the first left onto Prince Place and cut through one of the parking lots on the left.

Parking is permitted anywhere there is no signage designating special parking for Faculty/Staff or Maintenance. This signage is usually around the perimeter of some of the lots. Lot E, G and H are probably the best locations. We will meet in Accokeek Hall (library building) which is building #2 on the campus map. The aprking behind Accokeek Hall is all staff but for loading and unloading purposes I can get special permission for a couple spaces. Please let me know ahead if you can. The multicopter can fly out in front of the building in the courtyard surrounded by buildings 2, 1, 3 and 9. The TV studio where we will meet is located up on the third floor in suite 300, right next to the elevator and stairs. There is also a freight elevator if that is needed. If anyone needs to use it I should hear from them prior to arrival so I can meet them in the parking lot in case I need to open the loading dock. If things can be carried right through the front doors, through the library to the back and onto the freight elevator then that makes things much simpler.  Map of Campus
