ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM THE FAQ: Where should we park?

The influx of guests to campus, combined with morning rush-hour traffic, will create congestion around the Homewood campus. Guests are urged to allow extra time to reach campus. Parking on campus is available on a first-come, first-serve basis, please consider carpooling. Guests who will be staying in the city are encouraged to take a taxi cab.

On Thursday, May 23, there will be a morning shuttle to Homewood Field including a stop at the Mason circle and the Wyman surface lots between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  After the ceremony, a shuttle will transport guests to these two stops and also to the President's reception via the Eisenhower Library circle.

We anticipate that all parking on the Homewood Campus will be filled before 9:00 a.m. If you are coming to campus between 9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. you are advised not to drive. Please take a cab, walk or park at the Eastern campus satellite location.

A limited number of wheel chair accessible parking spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis on the Lacrosse Hall of Fame parking lot entered from W. University Parkway. A state issued wheel chair accessible parking hangtag or license plate is required. Please see Assistance for Persons with Disabilities.

The Keswick-Homewood-Eastern-JHMI shuttles will run on their normal schedule.

University Parkway Closing

Guests should be aware that the portion of University Parkway between San Martin Dr. and Canterbury Rd. will be closed to eastbound traffic during Commencementon on May 23. This will, however, remain available as a drop-off point for guests.

North Charles St. Construction

North Charles St. is under construction. This is a $28 million project led by the Baltimore City Department of Transportation, using federal and local funds and a contribution by the Johns Hopkins University. Guests should be aware that the northbound portion of North Charles St. between 29th St. and University Parkway is closed and it is planned that the street will be closed to traffic moving in both directions by Commencement. All northbound cars should use St. Paul St., that runs parallel to North Charles St. All southbound cars can use San Martin Dr., behind campus, or N. Calvert St., which runs parallel to St. Paul St.

Stay informed of any additional closures by checking the project page: http://www.charlesstreet.mdprojects.com/ or the Johns Hopkins project page: http://www.fm.jhu.edu/charlesstreetconstruction/ . Both pages will have details about any street closures on and around Commencement day.

Choosing sustainable transportation

If you are planning on traveling a far distance, consider taking the train or a bus rather than flying or driving your car. Taking the train or the bus is significantly more energy efficient, and the fare is often much more affordable. Furthermore, parking can be a costly hassle once you are in the busy city, especially around the crowded Homewood campus.
Visit www.amtrak.com to check train availability.

There are a number of discount bus lines that run between Baltimore, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City, to name a few places. Check out www.greyhound.com (nation-wide) and http://www.gotobus.com/mvpbus/ and www.boltbus.com (east coast only) for details.
The Amtrack train and the buses will take you to Penn Station, which is very close to the university. To get from Penn Station to Homewood, you can either take a cab for a modest fee or the JHMI shuttle, which visits the station every 5-30 minutes on weekdays.

During your visit, there are plenty of easy and affordable transportation options for touring the city. You can use one of the eighteen Zipcars located on or in visible close proximity to campus or catch a Maryland Transit Authority or the free Charm City Circulator bus to visit popular attractions like the Inner Harbor and Fells Point. More information on Baltimore City transportation alternatives can be found here.
