Student Services Building on Takoma Park-Silver Spring Campus

Each semester at Montgomery College's Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus, we change lives and change the world, one student at a time. Our dedicated faculty bring expertise and offer quality instruction in over 100 different disciplines to more than 7,800 students from over 140 countries. Established on this site in 1950, this cosmopolitan campus is the headquarters of the College's health sciences program and home to the School of Art + Design.

Maps & Directions

A PEPCO road construction project starting in early September 2018 will affect traffic around the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus throughout the fall semester:

  • Fenton Street, from the corner of New York Avenue south to Takoma Avenue, will be closed from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  During this time, all traffic exiting our East Garage will be required to turn left (north) out of the garage toward Philadelphia Avenue.
  • Ride On buses will be detoured onto Takoma Avenue and New York Avenue. As a result, ABSOLUTELY NO STOPPING, WAITING, OR DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP ACTIVITY WILL BE PERMITTED ON NEW YORK AVENUE. Everyone should use the pick-up and drop-off zone on the first floor of the East Garage. Learn more about drop-off and pick-up procedures.  

The construction project will continue throughout the academic year. This page will be updated with any new information about closed roads or altered traffic patterns in and around the campus.
