UMD: A Globally Connected University

Directions

 

Parking

Parking at the University of Maryland is limited, so visitors need to plan ahead to have time to walk from parking garages to their campus destination. Visitors to CIM are advised to park in one of two parking garages: the Mowatt Lane Parking Garage (recommended) next to the Smith School of Business on Preinkert Drive or the Union Lane Parking Garage just up the hill from the Stamp Student Union on Campus Drive. Both are hourly garages, and CIM will give parking coupons to CIM guests. Please refer to the campus map to see how to access the parking garages from the main entrance of the University of Maryland. For directions to campus, please see below.
