Please note that the building to the far right as you face the buildings is 9605, NOT 9601
There are three buildings on our campus. The seminar is in GILCHRIST HALL (9601 Medical Center Drive), this will be the building in the middle, the building with a circular driveway. The A&R (ACADEMIC & RESEARCH) BUILDING (also 9601 Medical Center Drive) is on the left as you face the buildings and all the way to the right if you’re in the back parking lot. Please note that there are two buildings with a 9601 address, but if the meeting is in the Gilchrist Hall, that’s the middle building, and if the meeting is in the A&R building, that’s the building to the far left as you face the buildings. There is very little parking at the front, but plenty of parking in back of all three buildings and to the side of the 9605 building. Attendees may park in any space that says “JHU ONLY” or in any other undesignated space on the campus.
