Baltimore is easily accessible both by air and by train.

The closest airport to Baltimore is BWI, which is 11 miles south of Baltimore's Inner Harbor, and approximately a 30 minute drive away from campus.

Amtrak trains, commuter trains, and intercity buses arrive at (Baltimore's own) Penn Station, which is 1.5 miles south of campus. There are two free shuttles that run from Penn Station to and from the Homewood campus, both of which can be caught on Charles Street, just to the west of the station: one is operated by JHU and the other is the purple line of the Charm City Circulator.
