Located in the northern heart of Baltimore, Maryland, Johns Hopkins University is an urban campus set upon a picturesque 140 acres.

Boasting state of the art facilities with advanced technology, as well as several scenic outdoor spaces, Johns Hopkins offers a variety of indoor and outdoor event spaces to host your ideal Baltimore area event.

Our newly renovated Shriver Hall is a favorite amongst many. The spacious stage makes it an optimal venue for performances as well as singular speakers and panel presentations. The Lobby and Clipper Room, located through the main entrance and off of the balcony, respectively, are perfect spaces for registration, a standing reception or sit down meal. The beautiful marble steps and manicured green lawn in front of the building make for exceptional photo ops.

The Scheduling and Events Services office at Johns Hopkins provides a range of support to ease the event planning process at all stages. Our experienced and dedicated staff are here to eliminate the stress and hassle of meeting logistics and arrangements while ensuring a successfully executed event.
