4 College Freshman

Weather: I'm from Minnesota, so I think it's great. You barely need a jacket and if it snows even a little they will usually shut down the school.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It gets very humid in the summer and it snows in the winter, but overall it's bearable.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: It rains SO MUCH in Baltimore. I only live two hours away, and there is a big difference in the amount of precipitation that we get. Definitely don't forget your rain gear. Our campus is beautiful though, and the rainy days make the sunny ones so much more precious.

The weather is unpredictable in Baltimore. Students from the North tend to complain that it never gets really cold and that it hardly ever snows. There are usually several small snowfalls each winter, but the city shuts down because it isn’t prepared to deal with snow. Although public schools close at the hint of snow, Johns Hopkins stays open as long as possible because it is so difficult to reschedule classes. When Hopkins does cancel class, most professors reschedule classes at their convenience. It is sunny most days, but storms come up without warning, and it is not uncommon to have thunderstorms every night during the spring and summer. Bring clothing for a variety of seasons.

Most students don’t find the weather in Baltimore unpleasant. They do, however, dislike not knowing what kind of weather to expect at any given time. Many days it looks warm outside while it is still cold and windy. People who stay at Hopkins during the summer complain about the humidity, but during the school year, the weather is overall mild. As long as you are prepared for unpredictable weather, Baltimore weather should not be a deterrent to enjoying life at Hopkins.
