Arriving in Baltimore

*Update: Fall 2020 Inbound Exchange Programs have been cancelled in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic to ensure optimal health and safety.*

Each semester there is a designated arrival date for exchange students. Please refer to the International Student Academic Calendar for current arrival dates. On the date given, you will be able to move into housing at Loyola and we will offer a pick-up service at Baltimore- Washington International Airport (BWI) and Baltimore’s Train Station (BAL).

It is important to note that we do not offer pick-up service from any of the Washington D.C. airports (Washington/Dulles Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport). Both airports are located roughly one hour from Baltimore via one of the nation’s most congested highway systems. Travel to Baltimore from these airports can be expensive, difficult, and time consuming. Therefore, we strongly recommend you plan to travel to Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI).

If you arrive into the Baltimore Airport (BWI) or Train Station (BAL), you will be greeted by a Loyola student who will drive you to campus.

You are required to submit a Travel Itinerary Form at least seven weeks prior to your arrival. If this information is not received by that time we can not guarantee your pickup.
