Our Location

The Research Instrumentation Laboratory is located on the ground floor of the Marshall W. Alworth Building on the south side of the main UMD campus.


Heading north on I-35, take exit 258 for 21st Ave E.  Turn left onto 21st Ave E.  After 0.7 miles, take a slight right onto Woodland Avenue.  Take a left onto College Street toward UMD. After 0.4 miles, take a right on University Drive.

The RIL is located inside the M.W. Alworth Hall (MWAH) which is the first building on the left when entering University Drive from the South. 


The RIL entrance is surrounded by UMD's Gold parking lot. A parking permit is required for all UMD lots during the fall and spring semester. However, there are metered parking spaces inside the Gold lot.
