Rich in academic tradition, the Homewood Campus offers convenient access to the university’s Milton S. Eisenhower Library, a Barnes and Noble bookstore and extensive computing facilities—as well as dozens of neighborhood shops and restaurants.

The School of Education’s classrooms and offices are located in the Johns Hopkins Education Building at 2800 North Charles Street, at the southern end of the Homewood campus.

The Education Building, formerly Seton High School, was renovated into a modern education facility in 2008. While retaining historic elements such as a two-story grand staircase, original wood paneling and stained glass, the building also integrates the latest in learning technology.

Education Building facilities include:

  • 11 classrooms equipped with advanced learning technology
  • A dedicated laboratory for counseling candidates
  • Multiple open computer labs as well as building-wide WiFi access
  • A gallery space for quiet study and small group meetings
  • The Great Hall, a gracious gathering space for large presentations and community events
  • On-site parking close to shops, restaurants, and the rest of the Homewood campus
  • Vending Marketplace for quick drinks and snacks

Education Building Security

To reach the security office, call 410-516-4600. In case of an emergency, call 410-516-7777.

A daily escort van service is available during the evening hours (5 p.m. – 12 midnight) to pick up and deliver students to any campus parking lot or other location within a one-mile radius of the Homewood Campus. Vans leave every half hour from the Eisenhower Library. Walking escorts are available by calling extension 8700 from any campus phone or 410-516-8700 from an outside or public telephone.

Push-button security/escort phones, located in several Homewood Campus buildings, can be used to alert security officers of an emergency, to request information, or to summon the escort van. Emergency telephone stands with blue lights, which connect directly with the security office, are located strategically at 14 locations around campus. These telephones open a direct line to the security office as soon as the receiver is lifted or the button pushed. To ward off a possible attacker, an alarm sounds at the phone.

Security officers also patrol parking lots including daytime and evening hours, and student monitors, wearing bright orange vests and carrying radios, patrol the upper and lower Homewood campus quads during the fall and spring semesters during evening hours.

Although each campus provides security services to ensure a safe and secure environment, the school encourages students to walk in groups to and from parking lots and to take other actions to provide for their own safety. Public and private telephones are located throughout Homewood Campus. The 911 emergency number may be used to summon local police, fire, and ambulance services.

The university issues its Annual Security Report that describes the security services at each of the university’s divisions and reports crime statistics for each of the campuses. The report is published in the university Gazette, and copies of the report are available from the university’s Security Department, 14 Shriver Hall, 3400 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218-2689; 410-516-4600.
