Housing & Dining

Student Housing

Living on campus is an indispensable piece of the Hopkins undergraduate experience—nearly all our Homewood campus-based undergraduates live in residence halls during their first two years, and some stay longer.

Underclassmen have two options:

  • Traditional residence halls, which contain mainly doubles (that’s you and one roommate), with a few singles, and shared bathrooms
  • Suite-style arrangements, which include doubles, singles, or triples; private bathrooms; and central heating/air conditioning (some also have small kitchenettes)

For others, there are plenty of apartments and houses for rent within walking distance of all four of our Baltimore campuses. JHU’s Off-Campus Housing Office, which publishes listings for available properties, can help.

Student Dining

We take pride in having one of the nation’s best campus dining programs. In fact, we were recently ranked No. 6 on the list of “Best Colleges for Food” by Daily Meal, which praised our menu and our commitment to social responsibility.

Our dining program includes gluten-free, nut-free, trans-fat-free, vegan- and vegetarian-friendly, and kosher-friendly options. Menu favorites include house-smoked beef brisket, hand-rolled sushi, and fresh salads with organic ingredients.

We’re also serious about our responsibility to our community and the world. We use cage-free eggs, hormone-free milk, locally grown produce, biodegradable paper products, and will phase out the use of plastic straws at our Homewood eateries by September 2019.
