By Plane

Washington’s Ronald Reagan National Airport—the airport most convenient to AU—is approximately 30 minutes from campus during rush hour by cab. Washington Metro (subway) trains run daily from National Airport into downtown Washington on the yellow or blue lines. Transfer to the red line at Gallery Place station or Metro Center station in the direction of Shady Grove (Tenleytown/AU station).


Dulles International Airport is about 45 minutes from campus and Thurgood Marshall Baltimore/Washington International Airport is about one hour from campus. All three airports offer shuttle services to major hotels and meeting points in downtown Washington. Shuttle services cost between $15 and $40 one way, depending on your point of origin.


By Train and Subway

Amtrak trains regularly arrive in Washington at Union Station.  Washington Metro (subway) trains run Monday through Thursday from 5 a.m. until midnight, Friday from 5 a.m. until 3 a.m., Saturday from 7 a.m. until 3 a.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. until midnight. The closest Metro stop to American University is Tenleytown/AU on the red line.


AU provides a free shuttle from the Tenleytown/AU Metro stop to campus. Directions to the shuttle are posted at the Metro. At the Metro station, take the escalator and exit to the east, which is on your left (look for the sign directing you to AU Shuttle stop). Once at street level, the shuttle stop is just a few yards ahead at the intersection of 40th Street and Albemarle Street. The shuttle runs on a continuous loop and departs every ten minutes. You need no special pass to ride. The shuttle will then be about a 5 minute ride to campus and you will want to exit at Ward Circle Building stop.  You’ll cross the mall and enter the Butler Pavilion through the covered walkway next to Mary Graydon Center.  The Butler Boardroom is on the 6th Floor of the Butler Pavilion.



Parking passes for the 6th and 7th floor of the Sport Center Garage the will be provided to attendees.  The garage is located in the middle of campus and is connected to the Butler Pavilion.
