Access: Ft. Lesley J. McNair is an active military installation and requires proper government identification for access. If not in possession of such identification, visitors must either be pre-approved by security or otherwise escorted on to the base. For the duration of this conference, attendees will be listed on a security roster to facilitate base access at the 2nd Street gate. A proper form of identification (such as a driver's license) is required to enter.
Note: Please plan to enter via the 2nd Street Gate which is open 24/7. Although there are other entrances, security protocols demand that as few points of entry as necessary be available on military installations. The 3rd Avenue Gate on the north side of the base is only open during specific rush times and is not guaranteed to be open at the time you arrive.
If traveling by METRO: The closest station is SEU Waterfront (Green Line), approximately 1 mile away from the Eisenhower School. Transportation to and from this station will be provided by the University for 90 minutes before and after conference hours.
Ride Share/ Taxi Use: Ride share companies such as Lyft and Uber are available in the D. C. area and may be used to drop visitors off at the main gate on 2nd Street. However, these vehicles may not drive on to the base. The Eisenhower School is approximately a 10 minute walk from this gate. Conference personnel will be present at the gate to escort visitors by van for approximately 90 minutes before and after event hours.
