Johns Hopkins University

The Hopkins Experience
At Johns Hopkins University, we embrace learning through exploration and discovery. Academic freedom allows undergraduates to have ownership over their curriculum and pursue the topics that matter most to them. Students learn through research, internships, and other hands-on opportunities that put their knowledge to work in practical ways. Hopkins students have access to facilities, resources, and support networks that help them achieve their goals. With campuses throughout Baltimore, in nearby Washington, D.C., and internationally, our students make an impact on the global community.
  • Johns Hopkins University Undergraduate Teaching Labs
    The Undergraduate Teaching Labs is an innovative four-story building equipped with the latest lab technology to accommodate interdisciplinary learning.
  • Johns Hopkins Homewood
    Established on a liberal arts philosophy and a spirit of learning through exploration and discovery, Johns Hopkins University was founded as the first American research institution.
  • Johns Hopkins University
    Brick walkways and grassy quads give Homewood a traditional campus feel, while offering all the amenities that come along with a big city.
  • Johns Hopkins University Atrium
    The Gilman Hall Atrium is a common in-between-class hangout spot where you'll find both undergrads and professors!
  • Johns Hopkins University
    The Hutzler Reading Room, also known as the Hut, is one of the many spaces for students to study, work in groups, or get tutoring help.
  • Johns Hopkins University in fall
    A beautiful time of year, fall at Hopkins consists of pumpkin carving, pumpkin painting, haunted houses, and lots of hot apple cider at Hoptoberfest (just one of many on-campus events).
