The Mathematics Department is located in Krieger Hall, which is building #26 on the map (circled in red), directly south across the Keyser Quad from Remsen. If you need to see department staff for any reason, their offices are on the 4th floor, in Room 404. Due to construction, to walk from Remsen to Krieger you will need to walk along the east edge of the quad, past the Milton S. Eisenhower Library, and enter Krieger from the east side.

The Inn at the Colonnade, where many of you are staying, is on University Parkway directly across the street from Homewood Field (across from #57 on the map, circled in red).

Travel:

There are three airports in the vicinity of Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

1) BWI (Baltimore-Washington International Airport)
This is the nearest airport to Baltimore, located approximately 13 miles south of the city. By taxi it takes about 20 or 25 minutes to get from BWI to downtown Baltimore, and about 30 minutes to JHU. A taxi is approximately $45 to $50, while Lyft/Uber are typically around $25.

Alternately, you can take the Light Rail from BWI to the University of Baltimore/Mount Royal station, and take a taxi to JHU from there. The Light Rail runs every 30 minutes to/from BWI, departing from immediately outside the International Terminal (Concourse E). The University of Baltimore/Mount Royal station is just 2-3 blocks west of Baltimore Penn Station, where taxis are easy to find. There is also a free JHU Shuttle that leaves from the St. Paul Street side of Penn Station to JHU, making many stops throughout the day, including weekends.

2) DCA (Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport)
Close to downtown Washington, DC and approximately 45 miles south of Baltimore. Lyft/Uber from DCA to Johns Hopkins University is typically $80. If you prefer instead to use the train, you can take the DC Metro (or a taxi) to Washington Union Station, and from there you can take Amtrak or MARC to Baltimore Penn Station. The train takes approximately 40 minutes; the drawback of this method is that trains have limited frequency.

3) IAD(Dulles International Airport)

Dulles Airport is in Virginia, approximately 60 miles from Baltimore. This may nevertheless be the best choice for international flights. Lyft/Uber from Dulles to JHU is typically $100.
