Directions from Philadelphia
Take Interstate 95 South. (As an alternate around Wilmington, Delaware, you may take I-495. It merges with I-95 south of Wilmington.)

Continue on Interstate 95 South to Exit 1B (Del. Rt. 896 north). Exit onto Rt. 896 and continue straight (road name is South College Avenue), passing the University of Delaware Athletic Complex (on your right) and the Chrysler Corporation (on your left). Continue over a bridge and go straight through one stoplight (intersection of South College Ave. and Park Place). You will pass by University buildings (on your right), go through a flashing yellow light and under a pedestrian overpass before coming to your next stoplight, at which you’ll turn right onto Delaware Avenue.

You are now near the College of Engineering’s five main buildings, two of which face the famed University mall, one building south of Delaware Avenue; the other three face Academy Street. You may either park in the municipal lot (a left off of Delaware Avenue) or turn right onto Academy Street at your next stoplight and continue south until you reach UD Perkins Center parking garage (on your left). Or you may be lucky enough to find on-street metered parking. The Department of Materials Science & Engineering is located in 201 DuPont Hall.

Directions from New York City
Take the New Jersey Turnpike South. The southern termination point of the New Jersey Turnpike merges with Interstate 295 and will take you across the Delaware Memorial Bridge. I-295 will then merge will Interstate 95. Make sure you follow signs for I-95 south (towards Newark and Baltimore).

Directions from Baltimore/Washington
Take Interstate 95 North. Continue to exit 109B (Look for “Elkton/Newark, Del.” and “University of Delaware” signs). Exit at 109B onto Md. Rt. 279, which heads northeast towards Newark. At the Maryland-Delaware state line, Rt. 279 becomes Del. Rt. 2 (Elkton Road) and feeds you right into Newark. Elkton Road will eventually end and force you to take a right turn onto Delaware Avenue. At your second stoplight, you’re at the intersection of Delaware Avenue and South College Avenue.
