Directions, Accommodations, and Parking

Building Passes

All visitors to GPO are required to stop at the Visitor’s Center at the main GPO entrance on North Capitol Street just south of H Street (not the bookstore entrance). Class participants should bring with them their agency issued identification badge. Each day of your class, the GPO police will issue you a GPO building pass. The GPO police will have a list of class participants; if there is a problem, ask the officer to call the GPO University on x21283.
