Living in Baltimore

Like any city, Baltimore has pockets of relatively safe neighborhoods and some more unsavory areas. Many graduate students and postdocs live in apartments or rowhouses around School of Medicine campus or the Homewood Campus, which are conveniently connected by the Johns Hopkins transportation services. Some of the popular localities are Fells Point, Canton, Federal Hill, Inner Harbor, Mount Vernon, Remington, Charles Village and Hampden. Please note that this is not an extensive list of Baltimore neighborhoods! Instead, we have tried to highlight ones with free or inexpensive transportation between campuses. Do not forget to check with the apartment managements to avail discounts and rewards for Johns Hopkins students and employees.

Temporary Accommodation

Temporary accommodation is available in McElderry House and Broadview apartments.
