A round-up of the best student discount, deals, and ways to save money as a student in the Charm City.
I’ve never met a college student who doesn’t like to save money. C’mon, what’s better than saving some cash, right? Living life can be expensive but thankfully, as a college student, a ton of places like to give us discounts so we can afford to explore the city and do more than just homework all of the time.
I’ve compiled some of my favorite and the most “worth-it” student discounts in Baltimore as well as some other ways to save $$$ on shopping or food if you’re a college student.
Friday Orioles Games – $10 tickets when you show your student ID
The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore – 50% of memberships for students
American Visionary Art Museum – $9.95 student tickets
National Aquarium – Half-price Friday nights
MARC Student Advantage – 15% off MARC Train tickets
UNIDAYS is a website that college students can create an account with their university email and get access to exclusive discounts and deals for hundreds of brands and services such as Hello Fresh, Apple, Grubhub, zipcar, and so many more!
Madewell – 15% for students

Some of my favorite cheap eats:
- On the Hill Café (Bolton Hill/near MICA): This café is a favorite spot for MICA students but I love it for the cozy atmosphere and delicious vegetarian eats.
- Tortilleria Sinaloa (Fells Point): I love tacos and this spot in Fells Point definitely hits the spot without breaking the bank. Tacos range from about $3$5 which, in my opinion, is about as good as you can get in Baltimore.
- On Thursdays, Five and Dime Ale House in Hampden has a special where you get half off your tab all night–delicious food and beer on tap? Count me in.
- Souvlaki in Hampden has delicious and filling pita wraps for under $7 – be sure to try the zucchini balls, they are so delicious.
