The Maryland Language Science Center is located in 2130 HJ Patterson Hall. HJ Patterson Hall (building #073 on campus maps) is on the north side of the main campus mall, and diagonally across from the Stamp Student Union on Campus Drive, adjacent to the new Edward St John Learning and Teaching Center. The main entrance faces St John.

Parking & Entrances:

Parking at Lot H is free after 4pm on Monday - Friday and on weekends. Please also note that the only accessible entrance to the building is the one located near the parking lot.


From Baltimore Ave/Route 1, enter the campus through the main gates. At the traffic circle, go straight (i.e. take the 2nd exit) and continue up the hill on Campus Drive. HJ Patterson will be on your left (just past St John Learning and Teaching Center).

The closest visitor parking is in Union Lane Garage. Continue past HJ Patterson and the Stamp Student Union (on your right). Take the first right turn onto Union Lane and immediately turn left into the garage.
