MSU campus

The city campus of MSU provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Baltimore has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The university students have access to the library. It is an integral part of learning. Students come here for educational literature or to do their homework. Thanks to international exchange programs at MSU, students can communicate with representatives of different countries and nationalities and thus expand their own horizons. And, the university contributes to this by regularly holding joint events for local and foreign students.
