The Housing Office

The Housing Office is situated on the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus to assist students, house staff, postdoctoral fellows, staff and faculty for the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Bloomberg School of Public Health, and School of Nursing with their off-campus accommodations. Although the Housing Office's primary focus is on student needs, we are happy to assist faculty and staff looking to move or relocate in the Baltimore area.

To better assist you with your search in finding the perfect home, the JHMI Housing website was created to help you find affordable and safe housing in the Baltimore area as well as answer many other questions you may have about Baltimore, student life, roommate finder, furniture for sale, carpools, hotels, daycare, transportation information, school systems in the city and surrounding counties, as well as other useful resources. The Housing Office also provides personal consultations if you require additional assistance.

Blue Jay Off-Campus Housing Commitment Program

The Off-Campus Housing Office has created a program with select commercial residential communities that are proximate to campus and have committed to providing enhanced security and a more collaborative off-campus living experience for students. Through this enhanced relationship, the Off-Campus Housing Office will have a better pulse on student satisfaction and wellness while living within our member communities. Students will benefit from targeted programming and a greater connection to resources on the Homewood campus. This program is designed for those residential communities closest to the Homewood Campus that have a high concentration of undergraduate students. Learn More Here
