Directions to the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus of Montgomery College

From I-495, the capital beltway, go south on George Avenue (Route 97). Turn left on Sligo Avenue. Continue to Fenton Street; turn right. The parking garage is on the right and the campus is on the left. The campus is easily accessible from the Silver Spring and Takoma Park Metro stations and local Ride-On buses as well.  We are at one end of Fenton Street, the sourthern end, where City Place is at the other end of Fenton Strreet, the northern end.

Parking while visiting the planetarium

If you are coming for a Saturday evening public planetarium program you may park in the faculty/staff only lot. Please do not park in the faculty/staff lot at any other time unless you have a Montgomery College faculty/staff parking sticker you maybe ticketed-sorry about that. If you are coming to a grade-specific field trip and traveling in a school bus please pull the bus adjacent to the planetarium in the faculty/staff parking lot off of Fenton Street. Leave the bus in the wide space near the planetarium, there is no better place. If you are coming to the planetarium for a public program not on a Saturday please park in the Montgomery College parking garage on King Street. If you are coming to the planetarium for a special program by appointment please pull your car adjacent to the planetarium in the faculty/staff lot and let everyone off, then come into the planetarium and get a temporary parking sticker from me, Dr. Harold Williams.
