Welcome to the academic and healthcare heart of Baltimore.

The city is home to Johns Hopkins University and the Johns Hopkins Health System—an influential hub on the East Coast for innovation, health, policy and culture. Our main academic campus, Homewood, sits on 140-acres of tree-lined pathways and Federal-style buildings situated in North Baltimore with convenient access to museums, entertainment, and historical highlights.

While we employ more than 55,000 employees and educate more 20,000 students worldwide, our economic impact in Baltimore is one of our proudest achievements: Over $4 billion in aid, research, services, and support.


Affectionately referred to as Charm City, Baltimore is a major city with a big heart and a small-town soul. Come by for a visit and see what we mean.
