Location

The Homewood campus of Johns Hopkins University is the primary academic and administrative center for the entire university.

Most notably, Homewood is the home of the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering.

Located at 3400 North Charles Street in Baltimore, the campus is grouped around two adjoining quadrangles. The Georgian architecture, wooded walkways, lawns, and collegiate energy make Homewood a pleasant retreat in a residential area of the city.

Libraries

The entire library collection of the Johns Hopkins University contains close to three million volumes; more than two million of these and one million microforms are available on the Homewood campus. Most of the Homewood collections are shelved in the Milton S. Eisenhower Library, which is open until 10:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and until midnight on the other days of the week.

Engineering for Professionals students are issued a J-CARD upon registering. This card entitles them to access all the library resources available to JHU graduate students. For further information, go to library.jhu.edu/infofor/grads.html.

Computing

Hopkins Information Technology Services (HITS) operates three shared resource computer systems: a Silicon Graphics Challenge-L server with UNIX (JHUNIX), a DEC ALPHA 2000 with Open VMS (JHUVMS), and another SGI applications (APSERV1). In addition, students may use laboratories containing workstations, personal computers, and terminals with access to the servers.

Security Services

A daily escort van service is available during the evening hours (5:00 p.m.–3:00 a.m.) to pick up and deliver students to any campus parking lot or other location within a one-mile radius of campus. Vans leave every half 8700 from any campus phone or 410-516-8700 from an outside or public telephone.

Push button security/escort phones, located in several campus buildings, can be used to alert security officers of an emergency, to request information, or to summon the escort van. Emergency telephone stands with blue lights, which connect directly with the security office, are located strategically at fourteen locations around campus. These telephones open a direct line to the security office as soon as the receiver is lifted or the button pushed. To ward off a possible attacker, an alarm sounds at the phone. Pay telephones also are available in most campus buildings.

Security officers also patrol parking lots Garland, Clark, and Stony Run from 3:00–11:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Student monitors, wearing bright orange vests and carrying radios, patrol the upper and lower quads during fall and spring semesters. To reach the security office, call 410-516-4600. In case of an emergency, call 410-516-7777.

Directions

From I-95 (soutbound) or from I-695 (the Baltimore Beltway)

Take the beltway toward Towson to exit 25. Take Charles Street south for about 7 miles (when Charles Street splits a block after Loyola College and Cold Spring Lane, take the right fork). As you approach the university and cross University Parkway, continue southbound but be sure to jog right onto the service road. After you pass the university on the right, turn right onto Art Museum Drive. Just after the Baltimore Museum of Art, bear right at the traffic island onto Wyman Park Drive. Take an almost immediate right through the university gates.

Stay on Russell Street until (with Oriole Park at Camden Yards looming before you) you reach the right-hand exit marked Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (look carefully for this; the signs are small). Take King Boulevard until it ends at Howard Street (remain in one of the middle lanes of King Boulevard to avoid a premature forced right or left turn). Turn left at Howard Street and proceed about 2 miles. One block past 29th Street (where Howard Street becomes Art Museum Drive), turn left at the traffic island (just before the Baltimore Museum of Art) onto Wyman Park Drive. Take an almost immediate right through the university gates.
