GETTING AROUND THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND




GETTING AROUND THE CLARICE SMITH PERFORMING ARTS CENTER



TRAVEL INFORMATION

 
By Automobile
The University of Maryland is conveniently located just off the beltway (Interstate 495).  If coming off the beltway from Route 1/Baltimore Avenue, use the University Boulevard/193 exit to come around to the back side of campus where the Performing Arts Center is located.  This avoids having to drive straight through campus.

By Train

The closest train station to the University of Maryland is the New Carrollton, MD station, located at 4300 Garden City Drive.  This station consists of Amtrak and the Orange and Silver Metro lines.  A UMD shuttle runs from the station to campus approximately every hour and fifteen minutes.

*Shuttles times are Mon-Fri, times may be different on weekends.
 
By Bus
The University of Maryland is serviced by several bus lines, including UMD shuttles and Metro buses. The Bolt Bus makes a stop at the Greenbelt Metro station, approximately 4.5 miles from campus.  A campus shuttle runs from the Greenbelt station approximately every fifty minutes.
 
Getting to DC from Campus
The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center is located approximately 14 miles from the National Mall.  There is a shuttle at Regents Drive Garage that runs every twelve minutes to the College Park Metro Station Green line.  The Archives/Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter stop is one block north of the Mall and Smithsonian Museums.  Due to track maintenance, please be sure to check the DC Metro website for the most up to date timetables, as many lines will close early on the weekends.

LODGING  

College Park Hotels

DISCLAIMER:  College Park is very close to Washington DC and a popular location for tourists looking for more affordable hotels while visiting the area.  This causes the hotels to be much costlier than you would typically expect.  In this area, you really get what you pay for.  A hotel that is a few extra dollars or a little further away may be worth the time and money.  All of the two-stars on our list have mixed reviews regarding cleanliness and hospitality.

Due to the popularity of the area, hotels will not hold blocks of rooms for events.  UMD has not held any rooms for ACDA at any of these hotels. The below list is meant to be a guide to you as you book your travel.  

Please make sure that the hotel you book has the parking facilities you require.  We encourage you to reference Yelp and other review sites before booking.

All distances are to the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center.
