Visitors are required to enter the campus through the NIH Gateway Center and will be asked to submit to a vehicle or personal inspection.
The NIH Gateway Center is located adjacent to the Medical Center Metro Station at the South Drive entrance to the campus from Rockville Pike/Wisconsin Avenue (Route 355). It combines visitor parking, non-commercial vehicle inspection, and visitor identification processing, all in one location. NIH will process all visitors arriving in vehicles or as pedestrians.
Visitors will be required to show one (1) form of identification (a government-issued photo ID-driver's license, passport, green card, etc.) and state the purpose of the visit to gain access to the Conference Center. Allow extra time for security screening.

Walking: Exit the Gateway Center via stairs or elevator at the 2nd floor, and follow the paved walkway to Building 45, known as the Natcher Building. You will be approaching the back of the building, but the doors are open.
