Directions and Parking

The UMGC office is located in the Lajes Education Center in Building T-100, Room 113.

To find our location from the airport, please exit from the airport and make an immediate left turn. You will come to a traffic circle. Take the second exit in the traffic circle, continuing straight. Follow the road and you will see a sign for Posto Unum. Follow that sign in the direction of Posto Unum, which will require you to make a left turn. Drive straight until the next traffic circle and take the third exit in the traffic circle (driving adjacent to the previous road). This road will lead you to the main gate of Lajes Air Field.

After entering the main gate and passing through the inspection area, please continue driving straight until you arrive at a small intersection. At that intersection, make a right turn and you will immediately begin ascending a steep hill.  Follow the road to the top of the hill as it curves. At the end of the curve, make the first left toward the Top of the Rock Club. Take the next left into the parking lot of T-100.  Park and enter the building through the rear entrance.
