Health & Wellness

We have a broad range of services and resources in place to ensure the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of our students.

Student Health Center

Our Student Health and Wellness Center on our Homewood campus is open six days per week to address student health concerns, free of charge. Certified health care professionals provide primary care, including injury and illness treatment, routine gynecologic care, immunizations, and travel consultation.

All students are required to carry health insurance, through either JHU or another provider with comparable coverage.

The Center for Health Education and Wellness—CHEW for short—is the health promotion arm of the Student Health and Wellness Center, providing health education programming and services to students to foster a healthier JHU community.

Mental Health

Your mental health is as important to us as your physical health, so representatives from our Counseling Center are available for consultations, individual or group therapy, or psychiatric evaluations. Their services are confidential and free.

Sexual Assault Response & Prevention

The Sexual Assault HelpLine (410-516-7333) gives students free access to trained, professional counselors 24/7. A sexual assault resource website launched in the summer of 2014 provides clear, accessible, and consolidated information on sexual assault policies and available services and support in the event of an incident of sexual assault or sexual violence.


Our O’Connor Recreation Center features an indoor track and pool, a 2,500-square-foot weight room and fitness center, squash courts, and a climbing wall.
