Each week during the semester, the Department of Physics hosts prominent scientists from around the country to speak at our colloquium series. This is an excellent opportunity for faculty, students and the local science community to learn about some of the most intriguing topics in the field of physics today. Colloquia are held Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. (preceded by light refreshments at 3:30 p.m.). 

Parking is available in the Parking Garage 2 (PG2), across the street from the Physics Lecture Hall. An attendant will direct visitors within the garage. A free ShuttleUM bus runs to and from the College Park Metro station at about eight-minute intervals.For further information, please contact the Physics Department at 301-405-5946 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
