Home Away From Home
The Academy on Charles is Baltimore’s premiere JHU off campus housing community designed to help students flourish throughout their time in college. Everything we do centers around our residents achieving their goals both academically and socially. That’s why we offer apartments with plenty of space for students to call home and access to a plethora of community amenities crafted with students at the forefront. What’s more, our walkable community is right across the street from the Johns Hopkins University campus and minutes away from a selection of Baltimore’s best eateries, shops, parks, and entertainment venues. Get in touch with us today to schedule a property tour or learn more about how to secure a spot for the upcoming semester.
No more hauling heavy furniture and worrying about settling into your new home — every apartment in our community is fully furnished and ready for move-in. For the bedroom, each unit comes with the standard bedroom furniture, including a full-size bed with additional storage underneath, a desk, and a closet. In the living room, there’s a leather couch, coffee table, entertainment unit, and barstools — a perfect place to host guests. There’s also a washer and dryer in each unit. Get in touch with us to learn more about the furniture packages we offer.
Our apartments near Johns Hopkins sit right across from campus and in the heart of Baltimore. Students can walk, bike, or drive to class without the headache or hassle of a long commute. Even better, our apartments are just minutes away from some of the best dining, shopping, entertainment, and recreation hotspots, including Potbelly Sandwich Shop, the Charles Street Market, the Baltimore Museum of Art, Druid Hill Park, and much more! Contact us today to schedule a property tour to see our perfect location for yourself or to get help with directions.
Every part of our JHU apartment community is built with Blue Jays in mind. We offer a wide array of on-site community amenities that help promote academic success and foster social connections. Students ready to hit the books can do so alone or with classmates in the private and group study lounges. If residents need to print out a last-minute assignment, we have a comprehensive business center on-site with 24/7 cloud printing options. We also offer high-speed Internet throughout our property. When it’s time to relax, enjoy posh seating and gorgeous views of the Baltimore skyline on the rooftop terrace or work up a sweat in the state-of-the-art fitness center.
Resident security is our community’s No.1 priority. Each of our Johns Hopkins apartments comes equipped with secure, electronic locks on the front door for ultimate privacy and comfort. This system prevents key duplication, provides a recorded log of entry, and permits maintenance keys to work only during designated times. Additionally, our entire community has controlled access, meaning only residents and their guests can get in.
The Academy offers individual housing contracts to all residents. Individual housing contracts offer peace of mind for students and parents alike; residents are only responsible for their monthly installment payments, not those of their roommates. Our individual housing contracts align with the Johns Hopkins University academic calendar, so students can move into our JHU Homewood apartments before the start of the fall semester. Contact our office to learn more about our individual housing contracts.
Our off campus housing community offers students multiple floor plan options to choose from, including studio apartments, one-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom apartments, three-bedroom apartments, and four-bedroom apartments. Each unit is designed in an open layout and includes private bedrooms, individual bathrooms, spacious common areas, ample storage space, and electronic key access for the maximum amount of privacy and security to our residents.
Scrambling and searching for a new roommate is a thing of the past. At The Academy, we offer roommate-matching services for floor plans featuring multiple bedrooms. We understand that having compatible roommates is an essential part of a well-balanced and successful college experience. That’s why we request that residents complete and submit a comprehensive questionnaire about their lifestyle preferences, hobbies, habits, and other critical information for perfect roommate selection. Contact us today to get started on your questionnaire or learn more about our roommate-matching services.
Our Baltimore apartments are constructed using the highest-quality materials and outfitted with durable furniture and appliances. Even so, The Academy employs a professional management and maintenance team, so students are never without help if the need arises. Our on-call staff is available 24/7 to answer any services or maintenance calls residents might need. Residents can request assistance either by contacting the office or submitting a request through the resident portal.
