The university provides a pdf map, as well as a dynamic map showing accessibility features on campus.
CUA has its own stop (called "Brookland/CUA") on the Red Line of the DC Metro. As you exit the Metro station through the platform turnstiles, take the tunnel to the left to reach street level next to the university. The campus entrance will be on your left, just across John McCormack Road, as you leave the stairs or escalator.
The university provides detailed driving directions to the CUA campus. Parking is at a premium at CUA, but there are metered spaces in front of Mullen Library, next to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception ("the Shrine"), and along John McCormack Road, on the east side of campus. Three-hour free parking is also available along Harewood Road, on the west side of campus, but the city time limits should be carefully observed.
The Department of Greek and Latin is in McMahon Hall, room 308, an office suite located to your left at the very end of the third-floor hall (including passing through a set of double doors) as you exit the elevator, or to your right at the end of the hall (including the same set of double doors) if you come up using the central staircases.
Our 19th-century building has odd-numbered rooms at one end of each floor and even-numbered rooms at the other; rooms are labeled mainly through the use of overhead signs.
All uncredited photos of Greece, Greek artifacts, and Roman Spain were provided by Dr. Sarah Ferrario of the Department of Greek and Latin. Many of the photos from Rome itself were provided by Daniel Ferrario.
The 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10, and 2010-11 Department of Greek and Latin classics posters (seen in miniature below, and occasionally appearing elsewhere on this website, as well) and the departmental type treatment were designed and executed by Lara Fredrickson, graphic designer in the CUA Office of Publications and Design Services.
All other photos are either credited, submitted directly by students, alumni, faculty, and friends of the department, or licensed through purchase.
The Department of Greek and Latin also wishes to express its gratitude for ongoing site management and technical support to CUA's Center for Planning and Information Technology (CPIT); to Bart Pollock, CUA Web Content Editor; and especially to Edward Trudeau, Associate Director of University Web Sites.
