The Computer and Space Sciences Building, west wing is located in the northwest quadrant of the University of Maryland campus (unlabelled building between #224 and #227 on the quadrant map). Meter parking is no longer available in the garage labelled PG2 -- you need to park in the football stadium parking garage (next to the stadium). The first floor has meters that will take quarters. All day passes for PG2 are available for $2.00 from the parking bureau on the west side of PG2. A campus map in pdf format is available here.
The campus is accessible from all D.C. area airports, Reagon National, Dulles, or BWI as well as by AMTRAK (stop at New Carrolton and either take the metrorail green line to College Park or call me for a ride ). The official DC-area airport authority website is available here. BWI's website is here. Directions to campus and timing information are available here. Be aware: travel time to the campus varies depending on traffic conditions. Conditions on the beltway (rt. 495) are viewable here. More location information and directions are available here.
A number of commercial hotels are available in College Park and neighboring Greenbelt. College Park restaurant reviews are available here. The
better restaurants have tended to be further west (Silver Spring, Kensington,
Bethesda) but things are improving. Marriott runs a convenient conference center on campus that has some rooms. Book ahead, as it fills up.
