- Academic Support
What they do: Good grades don’t happen by magic. The Office of Academic Support can help you develop the skills necessary to academic success, providing services such as small group tutoring, PILOT (peer-led team learning) groups, and one-on-one coaching in academic skills such as time management and note taking, and varied study techniques.
- 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. Campus Ministries promotes and supports spiritual development, theological reflection, religious tolerance, and social awareness among faculty, staff, and students.
- Career Center
What they do: No matter how far along you are in deciding your first destination beyond Hopkins, the Career Center can help—from selecting a major, to writing a resume, networking, job searching, interviewing techniques, and more. We serve all full-time students in Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and Whiting School of Engineering, freshmen through PhD candidates, post-doc and post-bacc students.
- Center for Health Education and Wellness
What they do: Making healthy choices doesn’t guarantee success in class and out. But making bad ones sure doesn’t help. CHEW’s programs show that healthy behaviors are behind academic and individual success. Eat better, beat stress, practice safe sex: these are just a few of the programs offered here.
- 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.
- Graduate Representative Organization
What they do: The GRO is a peer-elected body of Homewood graduate students that recognizes and funds graduate student groups, sponsors social events such as happy hours and sports tournaments, serves as an advocate for Homewood graduate students in policy and programming development, and partners with Hopkins administrators on initiatives related to the graduate experience.
- Homewood Arts Programs
What they do: Undergraduate student groups in theater, dance, music, and visual arts put on more than 100 performances and exhibitions every year. Art and dance studios, a digital media lab, music practice rooms, meeting and rehearsal space, and theaters with seating for up to 1,100 are available on campus.
- Homewood Graduate Student Affairs
What they do: There are 36 full-time graduate programs offered through the Whiting School of Engineering and the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences – and the questions you have on topics such as academic advising and policies, professional development, student life, services, and living in Baltimore cut across all of them. Turn here for help filling in the blanks.
- Hopkins Symphony Orchestra
What they do: Baltimore’s only community orchestra relies on the talents of 150 musicians, including many students. In addition to affordable concerts of orchestral and chamber music, the HSO also works with public schools, offers lectures and demonstrations, and delivers free pre-concert talks.
- 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. In addition to serving as a hub for LGBT people and allies, the office provides inclusion training, offers lectures, panels, and discussions, and advocates for campus and community needs.
- 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). The rec center features a gym, fitness center and weight room, racquetball and squash courts, climbing wall and bouldering cave, six-lane pool, and more. Free to all Homewood students; memberships available to other members of the Hopkins community.
What they do: The Registrar is the university’s academic record-keeper. The office coordinates course registration, grading, veterans’ educational benefits, and student health insurance. We publish the online academic catalog and provide transcripts and enrollment verifications.
- Scheduling and Event Services
What they do: Whether you need a single meeting room or space for an entire conference, the Scheduling and Event Services can help plan your entire event. Air-conditioned housing for up to 900 people is available during the summer, and our catering team accommodates everything from coffee to crab feasts.
- Student Conduct and Ethics
What they do: As a Hopkins student, you’re expected to respect the rights of others and uphold the institution’s integrity. Sanctions resulting from academic infractions and other violations of university policy are determined by two panels: The Student Conduct Board and the Undergraduate Academic Ethics Board. Each are comprised of students and faculty members.
- Student Health and Wellness Center
What they do: Need medical care now? Or advice on how to keep the doctor away? Services at the Student Health & Wellness Center include physical exams and routine immunizations; assessments of alcohol and other drug-use problems; reproductive health care; and more. Most undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral candidates are eligible for services free of charge.
- Technology Center
What they do: We provide students with expert-level technology support, mobile device service as well as access to deep discounts on laptops and accessories.
- Vice Provost for Student Affairs
What they do: Services offered through Homewood Student Affairs, which include career planning, health, wellness, and counseling programs, athletics and recreation, registration and academic recordkeeping, housing and dining, and more, add up to life experience – not just an academic one.
- 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. They serve as a connector for resources on campus related to women and gender and aim to promote intersectionality and authenticity through collaborative programming and events.
