Visiting the Library

The University of Maryland School of Law is located in downtown Baltimore, six blocks northwest of the Inner Harbor and four blocks north of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, in the University Center district.   The Thurgood Marshall Law Library and the School of Law share a common building. The entrance to both the law library and the law school is located at 500 W. Baltimore St, between Greene and Paca Streets.

From I-95 take Route 395 (downtown Baltimore) and exit onto Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., staying in the right lane. At the fourth traffic light, turn right onto Baltimore Street. Turn left at second traffic light onto Paca Street (get into right lane) and enter the Baltimore Grand Garage on your right. This garage is across the street from the Law Library.
