Entering the CAL building

When you arrive at the CAL building, dial “004” on the keypad by the front door. The CAL receptionist will ask the name of the CAL staff member you have come to see and will unlock the door for you to enter the building. Take the elevator to the 2nd floor. Check in with the CAL receptionist to receive a visitor badge.

Taking the Metro

Take the Red Line to the Tenleytown Station. Take the exit for the East side of Wisconsin Avenue. As you get off the escalator, continue walking straight ahead to the corner, then turn left onto 40th Street. Stay on the left side of 40th Street. Cross Brandywine Street. CAL will then be the second building on your left.
