Transportation

The Office of Residential Life no longer provides break or holiday shuttles to Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), due to lack of interest and demand from the student body. We recommend utilizing downloadable transportation applications like Uber and Lyft, as well as the JHMI to reach Pennsylvania station. From Pennsylvania station, you can then pay to take the MARC train or Light Rail system to BWI.

Room Reservations

Meeting rooms available in the residential halls are primarily for use by registered student groups. Student programs have priority in these spaces and all rooms are reserved through Scheduling and Event Services. This includes tabling on the Freshman Quad, outside Fresh Food Café and Nolan’s dining. All reservations must be made at least two business days in advance to accommodate the schedules that must be made for the custodial and monitor staff. For weekend and Monday reservations, requests must be made no later than Thursday afternoon.
