Directions and Parking

The UMGC office is located in the Lajes Education Center in Building T-112, Room 202D.

To find our location from the airport, please exit from the airport and make an immediate left turn turn at the traffic circle (third exit in the traffic circle).

This road will lead you to the main gate of Lajes Air Field.

After passing through the main gate, please continue driving straight until you arrive at an intersection with a road going up on the right. 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. After the top of the hill, make the second left. Take the next left into the parking lot of T-112. Drive around the building and park in the back parking lot. Enter the building through the rear entrance.
