The Lowell J. Reed Hall
Eligibility for Housing
Housing accommodations are available in Reed Hall for single students, or for those students who are unaccompanied by their spouse and family. All students, housestaff, and postdoctoral fellows of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, The School of Medicine, The Bloomberg School of Public Health, and The School of Nursing are eligible for occupancy in Reed Hall.
The submission of an application does not guarantee the accommodations requested. When assignments are made, the applicant will receive a room agreement which must be signed and returned with a deposit in advance to guarantee the reservation of the room offered.
Students & Housestaff
Room agreements are offered for nine to twelve months to students and housestaff and are binding for the ENTIRE period specified. Clinical Clerks in the School of Medicine and Child Life Students in the Hospital may also obtain housing for shorter periods, if there is room availability.
Reed Hall consists of two air-conditioned wings with connecting lobby area.
The West Wing offers three sizes of single rooms (see application); however, the number of medium and large singles is limited. Each floor has a large community bath and shower area.
Note: There are no rooms with private baths. Cooking appliances such as toaster ovens, hot plates, hot pots, and crock pots are not permitted in the West Wing. Large refrigerators are also not permitted in the West Wing. Small dorm size refrigerators and microwave ovens are permitted provided that circuits are not overloaded. One room on each floor of the West Wing contains a microwave oven for use by residents.
The East Wing consists of suites arranged with common living room, kitchen, and bathroom areas with adjoining private bedrooms. The majority of suites accommodate four single individuals.
All rooms in both wings are furnished with bed, chest of drawers, desk and desk lamp, chair, book shelves, and closet space. Each West Wing room is carpeted and equipped with venetian blinds and study chair. East Wing bedrooms also have venetian blinds. Most of the East Wing suites are carpeted. Residents of both wings must provide their own bedding and towels. East Wing residents must also provide dishes, silverware, and utensils for the kitchen area.
A limited number of parking spaces are available on lots close to Reed Hall for a monthly fee. Parking information will be sent out with room agreements. Parking is only available for 9-12 month tenants.
A centrex phone is available in each student room. Students can receive local and long distance calls, but can only make internal calls within the institution unless they choose to pay for local service.
