For individuals arriving as pedestrians, the Gateway Center (Building 66) is capable of handling single individuals to large busloads of visitors, quickly and efficiently.

Please note:
All conference facilities are open Monday-Friday from 7:30am-6:00pm.
Gateway Center is open Monday-Friday, 6am-10pm (except on observed holidays). When closed, pedestrian visitors should enter campus via the Commercial Vehicle Inspection Facility (CVIF) – Building 67 (on Rockville Pike between North Drive and Wilson Drive).

For visitors arriving in vehicles, on motorcycles or bicycles, the Gateway Vehicle Inspection Station (Building 66A), provides multiple inspection lanes and allows visitors to go through inspection and get a visitor badge in one centralized, efficient process.

Vehicles enter the Gateway Center complex through "NIH Gateway Drive," just south of the intersection of South Drive and Rockville Pike. Vehicles that choose to bypass parking in MLP-11 will go through inspection and enter campus at Center Drive near the National Library of Medicine. (
