Overview

We’re excited for the launch of the new Hopkins Dining program coming to Johns Hopkins University this fall! Hopkins Dining was created in response to the University’s decision to transition to a self-operated dining model, providing the institution with more freedom in developing a program that is focused on enhancing the student experience and implementing more sustainable food practices. Among the several changes that are underway, you can look forward to elevated menu options at each of our dining locations. Our residential locations, Hopkins Café (formerly Fresh Food Café) and Nolan’s on 33rd, will introduce new station concepts including Passport (international cuisine), Hot off the Press (made-to-order paninis) & more! Additionally, retail locations such as Charles Street Market will introduce new concepts including freshly-rolled sushi by Bento Sushi and Village Deli.
