Directions to the Norbert Wiener Center

The Norbert Wiener Center is located in the Mathematics Building on the University of Maryland College Park campus. The Mathematics Glenn L. Martin Institute of Technology building is the only building on campus with a dome (not to be confused with the Glenn L. Martin engineering building next door), and the Norbert Wiener Center occupies the second floor of the main rotunda.
