  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
Although Johns Hopkins has a reputation for being an ultra-competitive institution, this does not mean the people there want to sabotage you grades in order to better their own. People are always willing to help you understand the subject matter better and to make your time at Hopkins a good time. Hopkins may be tough academically, but the students there still know how to have a fun time.
Although painstakingly hard academically, the people you meet and the moments you have make up for all the long nights spent studying. You don't find opportunities; the opportunities find you when you're a student at Hopkins. It's a place like no other.
Student at Hopkins
Johns Hopkins University has truly brought together the ideal three characteristics of a school, in my perspective. The atmosphere is challenging but the people are willing to help. The education is top-notch, yet one must work for the desires grades, and there is a great deal of help from upperclassmen that I doubt is found at any other school.
Marysol from Dundalk, MD
Johns Hopkins University is a gateway to a world of opportunities in nearly every field. Hopkins prides itself on making incredible opportunities accessible to everyone. At Hopkins, students from all over the world engage in groundbreaking research, fantastic athletic and extracurricular opportunities, and innovative and stimulating academia that is both challenging and rewarding in all disciplines.
