Yes, upon admission and prior to enrollment, students with a disability should provide documentation of a disability from an appropriate provider that identifies the type of disability, describes the current impact of the disability in an academic setting, and lists recommended accommodations, including any accommodations received from previous educational institutions.

Regardless of whether you have received accommodations at a previous institution, we suggest that you begin the process as soon as possible.  Implementing accommodations can take several weeks, so it is important that you begin the process as soon as possible.   For more information, visit our webpage at  Student Disability Services | Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (jhu.edu) or send an email to the Student Disability Services office.

Since on-campus housing is not available at JHUSON, students are responsible for locating a place to live. Many students elect to live at 929 Apartments, which is within walking distance of the School. The 929 Apartments provide both furnished and unfurnished apartments, along with many amenities such as a rooftop garden terrace, WiFi and a fitness center.

Many students also live in neighborhoods accessible by the JHU free shuttle. Charles Village is a neighborhood near the Hopkins Homewood campus and is only 10-15 minutes away from the JHUSON. Other popular neighborhoods include Mt. Vernon, Butchers Hill, Fells Point, Patterson Park and Canton.  For more information on living in Baltimore, visit the Baltimore Living and Housing Resources page here

The School of Nursing is located just east of downtown Baltimore and is surrounded by several neighborhoods with a diverse history and culture, including Fell’s Point, Butcher’s Hill, and Middle East.

As in any large city, you have to make smart choices regarding your own safety. Hopkins security officials recommend not leaving any valuables in your car, and parking on the street in the surrounding neighborhoods is discouraged.

An escort service is provided for students and staff in the evenings to move around the campus. If you choose to live close to campus and walk to school, try to walk in groups with other students. Instead of driving to campus, take advantage of the free shuttle services that Johns Hopkins offers.
