- Campus Ministries
What they do: Campus Ministries supports religious groups representing a wide range of faiths and also administers the student-led Interfaith Council, which builds cooperation among all campus religious groups.

- Center for Student Success
What they do: Through coaching, mentoring, collaborations with campus partners, and community-building programs, the Center for Student Success focuses on every aspect of your undergraduate experience, providing an environment where you can maximize your potential and acquire the ability to thrive — at Johns Hopkins and beyond.
- Community Living
What they do: Chances are you’ll spend less than 20 hours a week in the classroom – a lot less than you’ll spend where you live and eat. Turn here to find on- or off-campus housing, learn about dining plans, work through roommate problems, and more. Your ties to community living won’t end once you leave university housing. Our staff also provide resources for those students living off campus.
- Dean of Academic and Student Services
What they do: The Dean of Academic and Student Services works with partners across the university to ensure student success both at Hopkins and beyond.

- Fraternity and Sorority Life
What they do: The first fraternity at Hopkins was established in 1877 – just a year after the university itself opened. Today, more than 1,000 students are involved in Greek life. Fraternity & Sorority Life helps organizations plan social events, educational programs, and community service and philanthropy projects for their members and the Johns Hopkins community.
- Hopkins Sports
What they do: Hopkins fields 24 varsity teams – 11 women’s and 13 men’s. The Blue Jays’ men’s and women’s lacrosse teams compete in the NCAA’s Div. I, while the others compete in Div. III. The rich history and tradition of the men’s lacrosse team and its 44 national titles are often the first thing that comes to mind, but all of our teams have achieved success: Hopkins is considered one of the top ten athletic departments in the country.
What they do: HopReach is designed to ensure that students who are having difficulties at Johns Hopkins receive the support they need to succeed academically and get the most out of their college experience.
What they do: The J-Card is Hopkins’ official identification and access card; it also stores J-Cash, which can purchase food and other items on- and off-campus. Deposit cash to your J-Card, report or replace a lost card, make an appointment for notary services or get passport photos here; campus groups can also borrow terminals to accept J-Cards as payment during events.
- LGBTQ Life
What they do: While focusing on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer issues, LGBTQ Life’s goal is to make Homewood a welcoming environment for all.

- Multicultural Affairs
What they do: OMA promotes diversity and inclusion by providing opportunities for students to engage in conversations about race and ethnicity, multicultural initiatives, cultural celebrations, and educational programs. OMA also supports the academic success of underrepresented racial minorities, first generation and low income college students by providing mentoring and academic support programs.
- Orientation and First-Year Experience
What they do: Whether you’re a first-year student, a transfer student, or a parent/guardian, the Orientation and First-Year Experience team will help you settle into Homewood by providing information about campus resources and ways to get engaged in your new community. You’ll get an overview of academics, student life, and what it takes to make a smooth transition to college.
- Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center
What they do: Our 63,000-square-foot rec center is about the same size as a football field (one of which happens to be right outside).

Free to all Homewood students; memberships available to other members of the Hopkins community.

- Student Employment Services
What they do: Homewood students looking for a part-time job, campus internship, paid campus research, or community service experience can find opportunities through SES’ online portal. We provide human resource and payroll services for on-campus workers and keep student employment records. We also sponsor an annual campus job fair and national student employment week at JHU.
- Student Leadership and Involvement
What they do: All work + no play = Not something we’d recommend. The Office of Student Leadership and Involvement supports more than 300 clubs and organizations, such as the Student Government Association, performing arts, religious and spiritual, departmental and research groups, and more – giving you the chance to develop leadership skills, build friendships, and create work-life balance.

- Women & Gender Resources
What they do: The Office of Women and Gender Resources is committed to supporting and advising Homewood’s campus community on matters related to gender and the achievement of women students.
