Instead of leaving your fate up to sometimes unreliable map websites, we suggest you follow the directions and map we’ve put together below when coming to visit.
The most convenient and accessible route to campus is I-695 (the Baltimore Beltway). Proceed to exit 25 (Charles Street) and go south on Charles Street approximately five miles. The University’s main entrance is on North Charles Street, immediately before Loyola's pedestrian bridge. Follow signs for parking to Jenkins parking lot for visitor and admission parking.
Street parking is available, but please take extra precaution to observe parking signs and restrictions to ensure that your vehicle is not towed.
We strongly recommend these directions rather than most Internet directions since they minimize the chances of taking a wrong turn and the drive down Charles Street from the Baltimore Beltway is both direct and scenic.
If you are attending an event at Loyola, please check your confirmation for specific parking instructions.
Special Event Parking
Certain events require parking at other locations. If this is the case, you will be directed to our other overflow parking options at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, Fitness and Aquatic Center, or Ridley Athletic Complex.
