The Howard Law School campus is near the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and Van Ness Street in northwest Washington DC. The campus is easily accessible by Metro, via the Van Ness stop on the Red Line, and parking will also be available in the Howard Law School parking lot. An attached map shows the relative locations of the Connecticut and Van Ness intersection, the parking lot, and Houston Hall. Directions by Metro and by car are as follows:

Take Rock Creek Parkway (which becomes Beach Drive) through Rock Creek Park to Tilden. Turn left (going west). Continue to Connecticut Avenue. Turn right on Connecticut. (Alternatively, you can take Connecticut Avenue all the way up). Take Connecticut two blocks to Van Ness Street NW. Turn right (going east) onto Van Ness. Follow Van Ness to the end and take the first left off the traffic circle. Proceed past the security kiosk, past the buildings on your right, and up past the law library to the parking lot. Park anywhere other than the Deanís parking place.

Parking is free, however, it is very limited so you are strongly encouraged to use the Metro. Please take a ticket when you enter the garage. We will give you a sticker to put on the ticket at the meeting. If you hand the ticket with the sticker on it to the attendant as you leave the garage, you will not be charged for the parking.

Take the Metro Red Line to the Van Ness stop. The Van Ness Metro exits are actually on Connecticut Avenue and Veazey; you should take the East Exit and walk South (towards the Giant and the gas station) for two very short blocks to Van Ness; if you turn left on to Van Ness and walk along the right hand side of the path, you will walk on to the law school grounds.
