Off Campus Housing Resources

The University offers information about housing to all students. Information may be obtained by contacting the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions Off-Campus Housing Office. Although on-campus housing is not available to nursing students, the off-campus housing office offers many resources for finding a place to live in Baltimore and the surrounding counties. There is also a message board section to post requests for roommates, as well as a section for furniture for sale. If you would like to speak with someone at the School of Nursing about housing and moving to Baltimore contact the Office of Student Affairs, 410-955-7545.

The 929 Building is the closest housing accommodation to the East Baltimore Medical Campus where the School of Nursing is located. All units include premium amenities such as hardwood flooring, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops with access to a 24-hour fitness center, 24-hour courtesy desk, controlled access entry, high speed wi-fi, weekday morning coffee bar and a garden rooftop terrace.

Please refer to our Guide for Moving to Baltimore  and this interactive map of the Baltimore area to learn more about the neighborhoods where many School of Nursing students live and the amenities that they enjoy in their area, and information about other Johns Hopkins locations and resources.


  • Renters Insurance! Renters insurance is inexpensive and strongly recommended! Do not assume that your landlord’s insurance will cover your personal property if there is a fire, flood, or theft.  Your clothes, jewelry, furniture, laptop, electronics, etc. all add up! Landlords may also require proof of rental insurance before the lease is signed.
  • If possible, try to visit Baltimore in advance and view your housing options before you commit to a lease.
  • Average student rent in Baltimore is $800-$1200 per month. This may or may not include utilities.
  • If you do not plan to bring a car, look for housing that is located near one of the Johns Hopkins shuttle routes or other public transportation. Many students also ride their bikes to the School of Nursing. 
  • If you do bring a car, look into parking options.
  • For your safety, find out what security measures are in place (front door security, door/window locks, alarms, etc.), view crime reports and try to live on a busy street.
  • The School of Nursing does not inspect properties; students are responsible for determining suitable housing.
