Directions

From I-95 (southbound) or from I-695 (the Baltimore Beltway): Take the beltway toward Towson to exit 25. Take Charles Street south for about 7 miles (when Charles Street splits a block after Loyola College and Cold Spring Lane, take the right fork). After you cross University Parkway, the Homewood campus will be on your right. Continue southbound. Take a right at the second light, which is Art Museum Drive.

Just after the Baltimore Museum of Art, turn right at the traffic light onto Wyman Park Drive. Continue past both the entrance to and the exit from the semicircular driveway in front of the Mason Hall visitors center. Just after the exit from the driveway, turn right into the South Garage. Visitor parking is in the upper level of the underground garage, but if that level is full park on any other level in a un-numbered spot. Walk up the stairs to Mason Hall (building #1).

From Maryland 295 (the Baltimore-Washington Parkway): Entering Baltimore, the parkway becomes Russell Street. Stay on Russell Street until (with the new M&T Bank Stadium to your right and Oriole Park at Camden Yards looming before you) you reach the right-hand exit marked Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (look carefully for this; the signs are small). This exit will put you very briefly on a service road parallel to Russell Street. Stay to the left and take the ramp marked Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Follow the directions (below) from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

From Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard: Take King Boulevard north until it ends at Howard Street (remain in one of the middle lanes of King Boulevard to avoid a premature forced right or left turn). Turn left at Howard Street and proceed about 2 miles. One block past 29th Street, turn left at the traffic light (just before the Baltimore Museum of Art) onto Wyman Park Drive. Continue past both the entrance to and the exit from the semicircular driveway in front of the Mason Hall visitors center. Just after the exit from the driveway, turn right into the South Garage.

From Baltimore's Penn Station: If you opt to take a taxi from Penn Station to the Homewood campus, the fee should be quite modest. The university is very close to the train station.
