The University of Maryland is served by three airports: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD).

The hotel does not provide shuttle service from any of the airports. However, the Super Shuttle is a convenient method of transportation to campus from the airport. A shared ride one-way costs approximately $28. Also public transit in the DC area is very good: after taking public transit to the College Park/U of MD station, the University's Shuttle-UM bus (#104) picks up university-bound passengers on the EAST side of the station.

We plan to arrange shared shuttles/taxis from the workshop to the airports immediately following the end of the workshop on Friday afternoon.

For local attendees who are driving to the workshop: we have arranged parking on campus. Contact workshop organizers for details.
