Johns Hopkins University is actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, with particular focus on the health and well-being of the university community, as well as on the continuity of university operations. This website is updated frequently and shares policies related to undergraduate and graduate student activities. We encourage you to check the site regularly for new information. All JHU sponsored activities are remote at this time. Any in-person, off-campus event coordinated by community partners are at your own risk and cannot be sponsored by JHU. Social distancing measures and PPE are strongly encouraged.
With our main campus located in Baltimore, Johns Hopkins is truly and proudly a city resident. Our commitment to our local communities is based on the simple truth that the health and well being of the university is inextricably tied to the physical, social, and economic well being of the city in which we live. Our founder and namesake, Johns Hopkins, put forth that idea when he made a bequest to establish a university and a hospital.
As the city’s largest anchor institution, Johns Hopkins feels the constant pull of urban issues. Our faculty, staff, students, and administrators answer the call on a daily basis, in ways both large and small, from volunteering as tutors in local schools to contributing nearly $5 billion in economic output in the city.
