The observatory is accessible through the seminar room (PHYS 401) on the 4th floor of the Physics Building on UMBC campus.

You can park anywhere on campus after 7pm Mon-Thurs and after 3:30pm on Friday. The closest parking lot to the Physics Building bumps up against the building. This is Lot 2. Also close are Lots 1, 3, & 4 or various on-street spots along Park Road.

Many of our events begin at 7:30pm, so we hope parking is easy!

Please let us know if you have any difficulty with parking.
