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

Fenton Street, from the corner of New York Avenue south to Takoma Avenue, will experience periodic closures due to construction. No vehicles will be allowed on this section of Fenton Street during this time. Please obey all traffic control signs in this area. 

  • Due to the closure of Fenton Street, 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 we created on the first floor of the East Garage. Learn more about drop-off and pick-up procedures (PDF, Get Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader.-Link opens in new window.) . All visitors to the campus should park in the East Garage.
  • During the hours when Fenton Street is open to traffic, steel plates will be used to securely cover dig sites. When wet, these steel plates can be slick. Please exercise extra caution when driving or riding bicycles in the work area on Fenton Street.
  • During the hours when Fenton Street is closed, all traffic exiting our East Garage will be required to turn left (north) out of the garage toward Philadelphia Avenue.  Right turns toward New York Avenue will not be permitted.
  • The closure of Fenton Street will also have a major impact on the Ride On bus routes (#17 and #18) that use Fenton Street. The Ride On buses will no longer drop off or pick up passengers on Fenton Street next to the Student Services Building (ST).  Both Ride On routes will drop off and pick up passengers only at the stops at the intersection of Philadelphia and Chicago Avenues next to Pavilion 4 (P4).
