In the second year, your clinical placements will typically be at an externship location within the Greater Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan area.
Here is a list of housing options where SLP students have lived and recommend. Loyola also offers a website with information on graduate housing. Most students opt to live in and around Baltimore (Fells Point, Federal Hill, Canton, Towson) while others choose to live in Columbia. If you have questions, please feel free to network with other accepted students or contact Ms. Emilie Aguilar.
The Graduate Student Services website has an 'online graduate orientation' featuring university-wide FAQs for grad students.
