Directions to NCSSM Durham Campus | Parking
Make sure you choose the Durham campus. Our Morganton campus is opening this year and already appears in online map tools.
Be aware Google Maps/Waze may send you to the wrong entrance. 1912 West Club Blvd. Durham, NC or the stoplight at 9th Street at West Club Boulevard is our main entrance. See directions and maps here.
Due to multiple events on campus, many visitors will need to park along streets in the historic Watts-Hillandale neighborhood west of the Maryland Avenue side of campus.
Special thanks to NCSSM, NCSSM Foundation, Broyhill Fund, Burroughs Wellcome Fund and NC Science Math and Technology Center for supporting this event and awards. Thank you to all judge volunteers, support from NCSSM Extended Learning and Academic Programs staff, NCSSM student presiders, and our Regional Directors.
