Washington, D.C. is unfortunately known for its traffic, so please allow extra time for travel. D.C. is divided into four quadrants around the Capitol building - we are located in "Northwest," so every street name is followed by "NW." Letter and number streets run perpendicularly to each other, and state-named streets tend to run on a diagonal. We've got several traffic circles too, so stay alert!
A limited number of visitor parking spots are available on campus. If you drive on the day of your interview, please park in our designated garage so we can validate your parking ticket: University Parking Garage under the Science and Engineering Hall (H Street, NW between 22nd Street, NW and 23rd Street, NW).
