Physical Access

Johns Hopkins is committed to ensuring full and equal access to all its facilities. This website will be updated to reflect known construction activity and elevator outages that would impact disability access. If at any time there is an issue that is not reported on this website or if you have a question about physical access, please contact the Office of Institutional Equity at oiedisability@jhu.edu  or 410-516-8075.

Construction Updates

Macaulay Hall Renovation Project

Additional information on all campus construction projects can be found on the Johns Hopkins Facilities & Real Estate website.

Elevator Outages

Since the majority of elevators on the JHU campus are multi-bank, there should always be one in working order in most buildings. If there is a single elevator unit that is not working, information will be posted here as it becomes available.

To report elevator outages and automatic door outages:

Homewood Campus or call 410-516-8063

Campus Accessibility Map

We are excited to be able to share the Homewood Campus Accessibility Map. The university worked with the Institute for Human Centered Design (IHCD) to develop a Campus Access map for the Homewood campus and immediate surrounding areas. Student feedback was incorporated into this initial version.

The map contains important accessibility features including the locations of accessible building entrances, accessible routes, and the grade (slope) of exterior pathways. This is intended to serve as a resource for disabled students, faculty, staff, and visitors on the Homewood campus.

This is the first phase of our accessibility map project.  The university is researching mobile app capabilities that would provide an accessible experience for blind or nonvisual users, offer a more interactive experience, and be easier to update with changes.  As we move into the second phase of the project there will be more opportunities to engage a larger group for their feedback.
