Parking is available in the Royal Farms Arena parking garage (enter on Howard Street) or at any of the surrounding parking lots and garages. Parking prices for the day will vary according to each individual lot and garage. Keep in mind that traffic and parking will be congested and may require you to park several blocks away from the Arena. Please allow time to locate parking and to walk to the Arena. Participants are strongly encouraged to use the Metro subway, the Light Rail system or carpool. Please also note the information below regarding bus transportation from UMBC to and from the Arena.
Faculty and staff will enter the Arena on Hopkins Place. Please look for the blue awning entrance.

Please indicate your need for transportation when you RSVP via the electronic response form. This information is important as buses are ordered for the number of RSVPs that are received.
