Visiting NIH

The Natcher Conference Center (Building 45) and the Lister Hill Center Auditorium (Building 38A) are located on the main campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. The NIH, like all Federal government facilities, has security measure in place to ensure the safety of all employees, patients and visitors.

All visitors must go through a security screening, so please allow extra time to get on campus. You will need to show valid government-issued photo identification (i.e. driver's license, passport, or other government agency ID). Read complete details regarding the NIH security screening process.

Because visitor parking is severely limited, you are encouraged to take public transportation. The Metrorail subway system has a station (Medical Center) on the NIH campus.
