Parking/Shuttle Service for SHAFR Conference

Shuttle

Please click here for information about the shuttle.

General Parking Information

Parking at the Archives II facility will be available ONLY on Saturday, June 25. If you will be driving to the conference on Thursday or Friday, you will need to park in our designated lot at the University of Maryland and take the SHAFR shuttle to Archives II.

If you have not already reserved a parking permit, you will need to use the pay garage at UMUC. Follow the same driving directions, below, but instead of turning right off of Presidential Drive into the UMUC surface lot, you’ll need to turn left and follow Presidential Drive around the complex of buildings and into the garage.

If you have already reserved a permit, follow the instructions below. You should have received your temporary permit by email. If not, please contact Sara Wilson at [email protected]


Parking at University of Maryland Designated Lot

On Thursday and Friday, June 23 and 24, parking for the 2005 SHAFR Conference will be in the UMUC surface lot, with signs that read “UMUC Lot.” This lot is the nearest surface lot to the UMUC Inn and Conference Center. The location of the lot is noted on the map on page 41 of the printed SHAFR program, labeled, “University of Maryland University College.” For more detail, you can also use the University of Maryland map at http://www.parking.umd.edu/themap/ (the lot is in the upper right hand corner of that map, right under the letter “D” in “University of Maryland” and is labeled “UMUC”.)

IMPORTANT: You will need a UMD parking permit. You may pick it up at the Conference registration desk when you arrive at the Archives facility. Before leaving your car, however, you must place on your dashboard a sign indicating that you are attending the SHAFR conference. This is your temporary parking permit and is only to be used the first day you park in the UMUC lot. It is being emailed to you as a separate document so that you can print it out and bring it with you.
