Baltimore's Hampden Neighborhood“Where should I live?”

That was probably the most common question I heard at our two Admitted Student Visitors Days (aside from, “where’s the nearest restroom?”).

While I can easily direct you to the nearest lavatory, I don’t have a definitive answer about housing. That depends a lot on your personal preferences, budget and needs.

I can, however, provide a host of resources for those incoming students looking for a place to live.


Last, but far from least. . .

The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (JHMI)
Office of Housing and Residential Life

We talk about JHMI Housing on both our external and Admitted Student websites (the latter requires a login and password). The Housing office can help admitted students (and current students, faculty and staff) find a home, carpools, hotels, daycare and more! Their website has a great off-campus apartment search (a guest password may be found on our Admitted Student website). JHMI Housing staff is also available for personal consultations.

And as always, our staff is here to answer any questions we can. Most of us have lived or still live in Charm City and are happy to share our experiences, favorite place to eat, or simply direct you to the nearest restroom.

I have nothing more to add.

 

As individuals who live, work, study and play in this city, we’re often frustrated by the image of Baltimore in the media.

It’s true, like many large cities, we struggle with issues surrounding poverty, drugs and crime. But Baltimore is more than just those things. We’re a city of neighborhoods, history, culture and yes, charm.

The video below has been circulating on social media. I think it shows a different view of Baltimore. See what you think. . .

In yesterday's post, "Baltimore is Star-Spangled," I mentioned the Blue Angels...

Fort McHenryThis is a very special week in Baltimore.

Tall ships begin arriving today as part of week-long festivities celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore. The day is revered by Baltimoreans as the day their city defeated the most powerful navy in the world. The day is revered by our country because it commemorates the writing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

This week’s celebration will include living history demonstrations, historic ship tours, live music, fireworks and my personal favorite: a performance by the Blue Angels.

O’ Say Can You See?
