Homewood is a traditional college setting in the heart of a bustling city: Think red-brick buildings and tree-lined pathways, an iconic clock tower, and expansive green quads in a metropolitan area with a rich history that has blossomed into a hub of social, cultural, and economic activity. The park-like campus is spacious and wooded—a perfect place to walk, run, or stretch out a blanket and watch the world go by.
As an on-campus Summer at Hopkins student, you’ll have access to an impressive array of campus facilities, academic resources, and services: Homewood offers all the amenities of a top-tier university, with state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms, expansive libraries, comfortable residence halls, recreational facilities, and more.
