The 104 Campus Shuttle runs from the College Park Metro station every 10 minutes beginning at 9 am. It will terminate at the Student Union. When you exit the bus, cross the street to the student union and walk downhill (right) to Hornbake Library (on your left).

Parking: For those looking to park on campus, the University of Maryland allows free parking in its Lot 1 surface lot on weekends. This lot is located behind the Cole Field House/Tawes Building and is roughly a 5 minute walk downhill to our building.
