Tips for success 
  • Enter and exit campus from University Boulevard (Maryland Route 193) at the intersections with Paint Branch Drive (near the XFINITY Center), Stadium Drive (near The Clarice) or Campus Drive/Adelphi Road (near UMGC).
  • Allow extra time to travel around campus. Your typical routes around campus may be closed and detours are likely to add additional travel time.
  • Information regarding closures and detours is available on the Purple Line website. Please reach out to if you have specific questions about guidance for your event or camp.
