Directions and Parking

The UMUC office is located in the Education Center in Building 20, Room 001.

To find our location, please take Motorway A-1, driving north away from London. Continue driving on the A-1 motorway toward Leeds, but pass the Leeds exit. The next exit off of the A-1 motorway is the Harrogate exit, A-59. Take this exit and proceed straight to Harrogate. Once in the city of Harrogate, you will continue to follow the A-59 all the way through the city toward Skipton. You will travel about 10 miles outside of Harrogate. When you see the Black Bull Pub on the right side of the road, continue past the pub, but take the next right onto Cold Cotes Road. When you come to a stop sign about one mile down this road, make a left turn and continue straight until you see the main gate for the Harrogarte base on the left side.

Once on the base, you continue straight through the front gate. As the road begins to curve before you get to the fire station, turn left. Once you take this left, the education center, Building 20, will be on the right. There is a parking lot just past this building.
