Early Arrivals

We have a number of people and groups arriving to the conference either Monday night or sometime on Tuesday. That is swell! The University of Maryland will be waiting for you in the lobby of the Prince Frederick dorm (Building #425, Sector D12 on the map, click here); the desk is open 24 hours during our regular conference.

The desk will open for Monday arrivals on an as-needed basis.

Monday arrivals: please give conference host Steve Thurston an ETA so that he can let UMD know to staff the desk and when. (Steve: heraldtrib @ gmail.com | 703-594-6397)

Tuesday arrivals, especially those arriving at non-business hours, please give conference host Steve Thurston an ETA so that he can let UMD know to staff the desk and when. (Steve: heraldtrib @ gmail.com | 703-594-6397.) UMD will be staffed-up during the day.

By Wednesday, the dorm will be fully staffed, and open 24/7.

Long-Term Parking Available

Long-term parking is available at the University of Maryland during our conference. You receive it on a first-come, first-served basis. There should be plenty.

At UMD, you rent a spot in the garage for hours, a day, or multi-days (at about $20/day). Park in the garage and then pay for the space at the kiosk in the garage (the parking fees are not included in the conference registration). Since transportation is taken care of with your conference fee, you can park your car in the lot and leave it for the entirety of the conference.

The best parking for us is Mowatt Lane Garage (Sector D12, Building #404).
