Metro Train and AU Shuttle Bus:
American University’s campus is located off of the Metro’s RED LINE. If you are using the metro for transportation, take the Red Line to the Tenleytown/AU metro stop. When exiting the metro station, use the escalators on your left. As you exit on street level, there will be a Panera Bread on your left side. Continue to walk straight ahead, past the Sears building, then turn towards your left and there will be a bus stop for American University’s free shuttle. Take the BLUE ROUTE shuttle bus to the second stop, which will bring you to the main campus, just behind the Ward Circle Building. Or you can walk from the Metro and skip the shuttle. Here is a map of the general area (PDF).
Washington DC offers many bus routes that service the majority of the metro area. American University is located off of the Massachusetts Avenue Line, with direct stops at the campus on the N2, N2, and N6 busses. Here is a map of the general area (PDF).
Parking is available on the American University campus in several locations. There are three main parking garages: one underneath the Katzen Arts Center, one underneath the School of International Service (where No War 2016 was held), and one attached to the Bender Sports Arena. Parking at American University is free on the weekends and after 5:00 p.m. on weekdays. For those who will be parking on campus during weekday business hours, there are pay by the hour spaces in the Katzen and SIS garages. The weekday parking rates are $2 a hour.
