Beautiful campus

This historic campus has a park like feel, with some of the most beautiful stain glass windows you'll ever see, that's not in a church.

We attended a lacrosse event at Homewood Field. The field is beautifully maintained. The staff (students volunteering their time) were very nice and welcoming. Bathrooms were clean and conveniently located on the 50 yrd line on both sides of stadium. We did not get a chance to walk around campus, unfortunately. There were options for both street parking and a... More

Absolutely what you'd expect from a Top Rated School. Clean, Well Maintained and quite impressive, so is the tuition, Lol.

We wanted to check out the university as it is so famous. As a plain tourist there's nothing to see, and it's super difficult to find your way around on the campus.

If you like looking at colonial, gothic victorian, and art nouveau architecture and interior design this is the area to be in to browse through. From the peabody institute library to the cathedral and just the surrounding buildings.

High time college kids in USA get exposure to major city living but within a pleasant environment. JHU Homewood campus provides that with aplomb. Leafy colonial campus but only a free shuttle ride away from a tough city with great history and grit. Also an easy 45 minute train ride away from DC where another JHU campus is also located....

In my opinion, this is Baltimore's best university. It is beautiful, historic, and part of the city's identity. It strives to have a hand in its grand past and the city's future.

We walked here from our hotel (long walk for us) but my friend wanted to explore the campus. Very pretty grounds. Students were just moving back in. There is a little book/gift shop that we walked into to get out of the sun. The ladies in there were super nice and one of them told us quite a bit of... More

Just to clarify, Johns Hopkins University is not the same as Johns Hopkins Medical Campus or Hospital. Johns Hopkins University is a lovely campus in the Homewood area of northern Baltimore city. The hospital is southeast of this campus and is in a much different city neighborhood. It is a world class hospital and once you are in the complex... More
