Directions to the Small Bodies Node

The Small Bodies Node is located on the College Park campus of the University of Maryland, in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. The SBN office suite is on the first floor, wing 2, of the Atlantic Building(changed in late 2016 from Computer and Space Sciences (CSS); still Bldg 224, new abbreviation is ATL), across from Parking Lot B/RR/5 (Regents Dr. Garage).

[The Astronomy main office and some department member offices are in the new Physical Sciences Complex (PSC) (red highlight and green marker).] Two nearby parking locations are indicated.
