Towson/Baltimore Information

Home. It's a small word with a BIG meaning, and we want to make you feel at home as soon as you step foot on campus as an official Goucher Gopher. Even though we offer plenty of activities and programs to keep you occupied, we also have some tips on what to see and do (and eat and play and buy) off campus, too.

Getting here

If you're hitting the road to Goucher, set your GPS for 1021 Dulaney Valley Road, Towson, MD 21204.

If you are traveling by plane, train, or mass transit of another name, there are various transportation services to and from campus, including bus, light rail, and cabs. Regardless of how you get here, when you arrive on campus our smiling first year mentors will guide you through every step of move-in day.

And for everyday travel, students can use the free Baltimore Collegetown Shuttle, which stops at Penn Station and at multiple local schools. More information on routes and times can be found here.  For specific accessibility needs please contact Baltimore Collegetown 48 hours ahead of time to make arrangements. Call 410.532.3035.

Settling in

You think you're prepared. You can't fit one more thing in the SUV. And then you get to campus and realize you didn't pack toothpaste or sheets. No fear: Goucher is near a Target, a Bed, Bath, & Beyond, and a lot of restaurants, if you're hungry after all that unpacking. Just ask the nearest staff, faculty, or seasoned student (or Google) for directions to these places and many other nearby resources to get settled into our new home at Goucher.
