Housing Options for Summer 2021

On-Campus Housing

Due to COVID-19, Johns Hopkins University will not be offering a traditional summer housing program for summer 2021. JHU undergraduate students who feel they need on-campus housing based on the considerations below are encouraged to apply for housing by Monday, April 12th.

The following hardships will be considered:

  • Students who are registered for summer classes and for whom continuing to live at home itself presents a significant financial burden
  • Students with documented disability-related needs that require them to live on campus
  • Students experiencing housing or food insecurity
  • Students facing a significant financial burden caused, in general

Students who meet one or more of these considerations should complete the Summer Housing Exceptions Application by Monday, April 12th. Based on a student’s need the University may be able to offer financial support or housing assistance. Case Managers in the office of Student Outreach & Support, in collaboration with Student Financial Services, will follow up with students to learn more about their circumstances and to make referrals to the appropriate offices and services. If you submit this application, please answer your phone when an unidentified number calls you. Decisions regarding applications will be communicated in a timely manner and all decisions specific to on-campus housing accommodations will be communicated to students by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, April 14th.

If approved for on-campus housing, students will receive additional instruction for completing a housing application via the Housing Portal.
