Satellite Parking

Woodglen Park & Ride Lot

The NIH is now leasing 300 parking spaces at the Woodglen parking lot in Rockville, MD.  This commuter parking area is used for employees and Training Center students for 3WF, which is less than a quarter-mile walk to 3WF.  An NIH Shuttle stop has been added to both the Executive Plaza and Montrose shuttle routes to accommodate commuters parked at Woodglen.  

To park at the Woodglen commuter lot, NIH employees and contractors must display an official NIH Parking Permit (the one that hangs from the rearview mirror), a DATS-issued dashboard placard, or an NIH Training Center Student Parking Permit. There is no fee to park at the Woodglen satellite lot; however, failure to display a proper permit could result in your vehicle being towed.
