Living at Hopkins

It’s easy to make yourself at home here. 

Our undergraduates live on campus for their first two years to build a sense of community, and live off-campus (usually within a three-block radius) during their junior and senior years. We offer a variety of comfortable, community-living experiences to fit what you’re looking for, including traditional residence halls, suite-style living, single rooms, and gender-inclusive housing.

Almost as important as where you live is where you eat. Our Homewood campus is equipped with six locations that offer an expansive selection for every taste or dietary preference and serve as hubs for community gatherings.

Some of my favorite memories are the hours my friends and I would spend in the Hopkins Café at dinner, taking up an entire table and sharing stories and plates of french fries.

Good Food, Great Community

Our menus are developed by a team of professionally trained chefs, with input from the Hopkins community. We carefully select our menu items to ensure we meet the needs of students with dietary restrictions and food allergies. Gluten-free, nut-free, trans-fat-free, vegan, vegetarian, kosher, and halal options are all available, and we’ll work individually with students who have specific needs.
