From Ronald Reagan National Airport
From the airport's main terminal, follow the green highway signs toward Alexandria. Proceed along the Potomac River past Mt. Vernon, historic home of George Washington, until you get to the Route 1 intersection; turn left (south) on Route 1. Go past Pence gate until you reach the traffic light at Backlick road. Turn left into Tulley Gate (Backlick Rd. becomes Pohick Rd.). If your vehicle does not have a DoD Decal, you will be directed to the tent to have your vehicle searched. All adults must have a valid photo ID. Follow the road through Tulley gate and turn right onto Gunston road. Turn left on 18th Street and then left into the parking area. The DAU campus is on the right located between 18th and 19th streets.
