- 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.
- Center for Social Concern
What they do: Help improve your community by performing service with others – not service to others. The Center houses over 60 student-led community service groups; we also provide tutoring for Baltimore elementary school students, interns to work in area non-profits, and support for faculty who want to incorporate community projects into their curriculums.
- 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.
- Digital Media Center
What we do: We provide a creativity lab and circulation center for students – with free access to cutting-edge software, audio and video gear, maker equipment, and 3D printing – giving you a chance to master new technology and spread new ideas. Play video games in the Gaming Lounge (or code your own); gain new skills in our workshops.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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). 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.
- Student Disability Services
What they do: We help full-time undergraduate and graduates students Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and Whiting School of Engineering gain equal access and support for academic, developmental, and career-related needs. Students seeking support for a disability must register through our office.
- 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.
- 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.
