The Homewood Campus
The Homewood campus is the place our undergrads embrace as home base for their time here. It’s a 140-acre traditional college campus nestled in the heart of a big city. See it for yourself right now by taking our virtual campus tour:

Homewood has it all—green quads, brick pathways, and a grassy area affectionately called “The Beach” used for sunbathing, studying, and socializing. And just outside the campus gate waits the bustling, energetic city of Baltimore, Maryland.
With a traditional campus feel and big city amenities, it’s where Johns Hopkins students live, research, learn, and play.
We’re a community of curious and passionate people, all who arrived at the same place for the same reason: to follow our interests wherever they may lead. Discussions often spill out of classrooms, onto quads, and into residence halls. The classes are small, and the resources are big. Our students benefit from close, collaborative relationships with professors and peers common to the way they would at a small liberal arts school, along with the accessible opportunities of a major research institution with a global reach.
Hopkins students are making an impact and contributing to important discoveries—getting experiences normally reserved for professionals and graduate schools.
Join us for a campus visit to tour these buildings and the rest of our 140-acre campus.
Hopkins students come to Homewood with big ideas and the drive to dig deeper into the topics that matter to them. Here, they find the resources to explore their curiosities, with access to state-of-the-art equipment, study spaces built with student input and collaboration in mind, and plenty of coffee shops.
Brody Learning Commons (BLC) is a collaborative learning building designed with input from current students. Watch this student-produced video “Hopkins Defined: BLC” for a closer look.
The Da Vinci Surgical Robot, housed in the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics in Hackerman Hall, is used by undergrads in the robotics or computer-integrated surgery minors and for some undergraduate research. See it in action!
The Undergraduate Teaching Labs: Built in 2013, the Undergraduate Teaching Laboratories (UTL) is a high-tech space that brings together undergraduate labs and faculty in the departments of Chemistry, Biology, Biophysics, Psychological and Brain Sciences, and the undergraduate Neuroscience program—allowing our students to study science in a dynamic and interdisciplinary way.
Watch this student-produced video “Hopkins Defined: UTL” for a closer look at the Undergraduate Teaching Labs.
