Campus Life

“Ooh” and “aah” at the Lighting of the Quads fireworks. Cheer on the Blue Jays from The Nest. Share a funnel cake at Spring Fair. Discover what Baltimore's many neighborhoods have to offer.

Life at Johns Hopkins is about more than earning a degree. Here, you'll be a part of enduring university traditions and have new experiences that you'll remember for a lifetime.

Hopkins attracts students with diverse backgrounds and interests. Whatever you're into—singing or kayaking, taking pictures or building robots, discussing international relations or playing Quidditch (yes, we have a team)—there's bound to be a group for you. We encourage our students to form their own clubs, so there are more than 400 undergraduate student-run clubs and organizations (and they're all included in our searchable club directory):

We have 24 varsity sports teams, and more than half of our undergrads play intramural or club sports. In the spring, everyone comes together for the nation's largest student-run festival, Spring Fair, a three-day celebration featuring music and merriment (and yes, funnel cakes).

All this takes place in Baltimore, a culturally diverse city with a small-town feel that has earned the nickname Charm City.
