Before parking, all visitors to the Suitland Federal Compound and NMIC must stop at the visitor’s center located at the front Suitland Federal gate to receive a visitor’s parking pass. For more information on this procedure, visit the Security Procedures page.
Parking is limited on the National Maritime Intelligence Center compound and typically fills before 0800. Once through the NMIC gate, visitors may park in unreserved spaces in the paved Visitor Lot in front of the NMIC, if available. However, there are several restricted lots on the compound not authorized for visitor parking, including the Executive Lot, Carpool Lot, and the new surface, perimeter, and D-Wing lots in the rear of the building. Do not park in restricted parking spaces or lots, unless specifically authorized by the ONI Police. In the event that all unreserved spaces are filled on the NMIC compound, there is overflow parking across the street from the compound (labeled NOAA, Lot 3, and Gravel Lot on the map).
Visitor parking is most available in the large, open parking lot across Swann Road from the NMIC (labeled NOAA, Lot 3, and Gravel Lot on the map). After entering the Suitland Federal gate and collecting a parking pass from the visitor center, continue straight through the series of stop signs. Turn right into the first parking lot on the right (Lot 3). After parking, visitors may exit their vehicles and enter the NMIC compound by using the ONI shuttle service or walking along Swann Road until arriving at the ONI Main Gate on the left. (Visitors with intelligence community badges may enter the NMIC compound through the roto-turn system across from the large, open parking lot.)
The white ONI Shuttle picks up at a few locations on the Suitland Federal Center property, including the rear of the large, open parking lot across Swann Road (Gravel Lot on map) from the NMIC. The shuttle service runs on a continuous loop from 0530-1830.
