What Does it Cost to Attend Johns Hopkins University?
Returning Undergraduates

Cost will vary depending on the type of room and meal plan. Commuting students' budgets are less than residential students' budgets. Some students will spend more than our estimates, and others will spend less. We use a standard budget for financial aid purposes to ensure equitable distribution of resources.

The budget includes direct expenses for which Hopkins will bill you, such as tuition, fees, and room and board for freshmen. Indirect expenses are also included as part of the budget, however, you will not be billed directly by the University for these expenses. Examples of indirect expenses are off-campus living expenses, books, supplies, personal expenses, and travel. Students who must obtain health insurance through the university should notify the Office of Student Financial Services for assistance with that expense.

Undergraduate Student Expense Budget
Academic Year 2016–17
Tuition $50,410
Room & Board* (on-campus) $14,976
Room & Board (off-campus – estimate) $10,255
Personal Expenses $1,044
Books and Supplies $1,220
Average Travel (costs vary depending on home state) $702

*Estimate based on double room in typical university housing and full university meal plan.
Detailed information about off-campus housing is available on the JHU Housing website.
