The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions no longer has any on-campus housing.  You are strongly encouraged to arrange at least temporary or short-term housing in a hotel or elsewhere prior to your arrival in Baltimore.  It can take time to find a place to live and you will need a place to stay upon your arrival in Baltimore.  We strongly encourage you to take advantage of the JHMI Housing Office’s resources, in addition to property listings, they maintain a list of current Hopkins staff and students who are willing to provide information about the various neighborhoods in Baltimore that they live in.


Short-Term Housing Options:

JHMI short-term Housing

The 929 Building:  There is a nightly negotiated reduced-rate at the 929 Building which is located adjacent to the Medical Campus

Local Hotels:  A comprehensive list of hotels near the medical campus is maintained (ask about discounted rates for Hopkins affiliates)


Long-Term Housing Options:

The JHMI Housing Office Off-Campus Housing website maintains listings that are pre-screened by JHMI Housing Office Staff

Craigslist:  In recent years, Hopkins students have been the target of scams on Craigslist. Exercise good judgment and be cautious.  If you have doubts about the property, the landlord, or the neighborhood, contact the JHMI Housing Office who can provide good advice.
