Journalism Workshop on Evidence-Based Medicine: Getting there
The Walter E. Washington Convention Center is located between 7th and 9th Streets and N Street and Mt. Vernon Place in downtown D.C., right across from Carnegie Library at Mt. Vernon Square. The entrance on Mt. Vernon Place, between 7th and 9th Streets NW is the main entrance. This is where taxi drop-off and pick-up occurs.
The entrances on either side of L Street NW - the north side near Rooms 140 (where our Fri. morning breakfast and general session will be held) and 156, and the south side by Rooms 102 and 103) are heavily used, especially by guests arriving via shuttle buses. Both sides of L Street can be used for shuttle buses, depending on the number of shuttle bus routes, or the number of events with active shuttle bus activity on a given day. All public entrances are typically open during standard business hours, but hours are adjusted based on your specific daily requirements and overall event activity.
The Metro (subway) entrance is at the corner of M and 7th Streets, NW. The Green and Yellow subway lines stop at this exit, called the “Mt. Vernon Square/7th St/Convention Center” exit. Guests arriving via Metro can see the entrance to the center directly in front of them as they travel up the escalators exiting the Metro. For more information on Metro routes, rates and hours, please consult Metro’s website.
