Directions and Parking

To find our location, please take Autobahn 3 (A3) in the direction of Regensburg. Take the "Parsburg" exit and follow the signs to Hohenfels. You will enter the base at gate one. Once you pass through the inspection point, please turn right onto Warrior Way at the "T" intersection (there is a Community Bank on the right side of the intersection). Continue straight on Warrior Way as the road first leads down and then up a large hill. When you reach the post office, make a right turn. The education center is located on the right side of the street in Building 351 and the UMGC office is in Room 7. Parking is available in front of the building.
