Driving to Campus

  • From I-95/495, take exit 25 (US-1, College Park) to US-1 South
  • From the Baltimore-Washington Parkway (295), take the exit Greenbelt to MD-193 West and then US-1 South.

Parking on Campus

  • The campus has two kinds of visitor parking spots: meters (few in number and really only good for very short stays) and pay station spots. The closest pay station location is on the roof level of
  • Regents Drive Garage.
  • There are other visitor spots in the Union Lane Garage near the Stamp Union and in the Stadium Drive Garage.
  • Weekdays after 4pm and all day Saturday and Sunday parking is free for everybody at many unrestricted lots. Do NOT park at a parking meter! Double check the sign at the entrance of the parking lot!
  • If you are an official department visitor (such as a seminar speaker) and the department has promised to pay for your parking, make sure you get an 8-digit PIN from the department for use at the pay station. This will cover your parking for a full day.

Metro Rail to Campus

  • Take the Green Line to the College Park/Univ. of Maryland station - Map of the DC Metro System
  • From the College Park Metro station take the free Shuttle UM bus (route #104)  leaving from the EAST side of the Metro station (main exit). Please see the Shuttle UM bus schedules for more details.  The bus line ends on Regent's Drive across from the Toll Physics Building; you can cut through that building to Kirwan Hall.  Going back toward the metro, the bus stops across the street from Kirwan Hall on Campus Drive.
  • You can also walk to campus from the Metro station (about .8 mile, 20 minutes). Take the underpass to the WEST side of the Metro station and walk west on College Avenue.  (College Ave. is a block to the right of the exit from the station.)  Following College Avenue (which becomes Regents Dr. after crossing Route 1) will take you the traffic circle with the big "M" where the Math building is located.

Airports to Campus

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA)
  • Take the Metro Yellow Line in the direction of Mt. Vernon Sq./7th St.
  • At L'Enfant Plaza, Gallery Place, or Mt. Vernon Square, switch to the Green Line, which runs along the same track, in the direction of Greenbelt. 
  • Get off at the station College Park/University of Maryland.
  • Follow the directions above Metro Rail to Campus.
Dulles International Airport (IAD)

Cheapest method, takes about 1 hour 30 minutes:

  • Washington Flyer has a ticket booth at door 4 on the arrivals level. Buses to Wiehle-Reston East Metro station are $5 and leave about every 20 minutes.
  • From the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station take the Silver Line in the direction of Largo Town Center to the station L'Enfant Plaza (takes about 45 minutes).
  • Take the Green Line in the direction Greenbelt to the station College Park/University of Maryland.
  • Follow the directions above Metro Rail to Campus.

More comfortable method, takes about 1 hour:

  • SuperShuttle vans can take you to the Campus or a nearby hotel. Go to the SuperShuttle ticket counter on the lower level.
Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI)
  • The Metrobus line B30 departs about every 30 minutes. See the schedule and map (PDF). The bus takes you to the Greenbelt Metro station.
  • From there take the C2 metrobus direct to campus.
  • Alternatively, you can take the  Metro Green Line to the College Park/University of Maryland station.  Follow the directions above Metro Rail to Campus.
  • SuperShuttle vans can take you to the Campus or a nearby hotel. Go to the SuperShuttle ticket counter on the lower level.

Amtrak to Campus

If you are coming via Amtrak train from Boston, New York, Philadelphia, etc., the closest train station to campus is New Carrollton. From the New Carrollton station, you can take the F6 Metrobus, which stops right in front of the Math Building. Alternatively, you can get off at Union Station in downtown DC and take Metrorail (Red and Green Lines) to College Park. If you are in a hurry, you can take a cab or Uber from New Carrollton to campus; the fare is approximately $15.

Long Distance Bus to Campus

If you are coming from Boston, New York, or Philadelphia, it is also possible to take the Bolt Bus to the Greenbelt Metro station. From there, take the C2 metrobus or else take the Green Line of the metro one stop to College Park and follow the directions above under Metro Rail to Campus.  Other long-distance bus services in the northeast corridor include Vamoose and Tripper Bus, which stop in Bethesda (less convenient to campus), and Greyhound, which stops near Union Station and also in downtown Silver Spring.

  • Title: Quantitative stochastic homogenization of linear elliptic PDE

    Speaker: Dr. Scott ArmstrongAbstract: I will discuss the large-scale asymptotics of solutions of linear elliptic equations with random coefficients. It is well-known that solutions converge (in the limit of scale separation) to those of a deterministic equation, a kind of law of large numbers result called "homogenization". In recent years obtaining quantitative information about this convergence has attracted a lot of attention. I will give an overview of one such approach to the topic based on variational methods, elliptic regularity, and ``renormalization-group'' arguments.
