On Campus Housing

We are aware that it is often difficult for some Graduate Students to find off-campus housing when living so far away, and the Peabody Residence Life Office is happy to announce an on-campus housing option specifically reserved for Graduate Students and Juniors/Seniors. We are offering single rooms located on four floors of the Peabody Living Center. This on-campus building is separate from the residence hall and is located steps away from the Dining Hall, classrooms, studios, Arthur Friedheim Library, practice rooms, and concert halls. All rooms include a private bathroom and come equipped with a microwave/refrigerator combo. The Peabody Living Center rooms do not contain kitchens, so if you choose this housing option, you will be required to purchase one of the meal plans listed below.

**There are still openings at the Peabody Living Center for Fall 2017.  Please complete the Housing Application and contact us at studentaffairs@peabody.jhu.edu if you are interested in this on-campus housing opportunity.**

Make sure that you enter your JHED ID. If you have not yet received your JHED ID, then you will not be able to complete an application until one is assigned. Once you are logged in, choose the option to apply for the Peabody Living Center (previously the Peabody Inn), which is our graduate student housing.

Please note that it may take up to 48 hours after your JHED ID has been generated before you are able to access the Housing Application.

If you have any questions about this on-campus housing option, please contact the Housing & Residence Life Office at 667-208-6700 or by e-mail at pretz@jhu.edu.

What sets the Peabody Living Center apart from the undergraduate residence hall?

The rooms in the Peabody Living Center are restricted to graduate students, juniors, and seniors. All rooms have a private bathroom, and come equipped with a microwave a refrigerator. In addition, the Peabody Living Center is considered a “quiet” residence hall for students who are interested in and committed to living in an atmosphere conducive to quiet study.

What do the rooms look like? Do I need to bring my own furniture?

The rooms are spacious and open. They also have beautiful large windows. All rooms are fully furnished with a bed, dresser, mirror, window shades, small refrigerator/microwave combination, desk, and chair.

When will I know if I have a room in the Peabody Living Center?

The applications are on a first come, first serve basis. We will notify students as we receive applications whether or not there is still space available.

What do I need to bring? What size bedding do I need?

When deciding what to bring you should decide what is important for you to live comfortably but compactly. Peabody provides each resident with a dresser and mirror, twin bed, desk and chair, compact refrigerator, and window shade. So with this in mind, decide what you need. However there are some things you may not bring since they may be considered a fire hazard.

Why do I have to pay a Room Reservation Fee?

Rooms in the Peabody Living Center are in high demand and we ask that students reserving rooms commit to the reservation by putting down a non-refundable $150 Room Reservation Fee prior to selecting a room. This fee is then applied to the cost of the room.

What type of security does the Peabody Living Center have?

While the Main Entrance (17 E. Mt. Vernon Place) to the Peabody campus is accessible during business hours, the other entrances to the campus can only be accessed with an ID card. In addition, Campus Security which is located in the basement of the Shapiro House directly adjacent to the Peabody Living Center is available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

One Resident Assistant (RA) is assigned to the Peabody Living Center to serve as a peer advisor and community leader. Each RA receives thorough training and is available to provide resources and information to help students on campus as well as to respond to emergency situations. Additionally, RAs sponsor educational and social programs that provide a variety of enrichment opportunities during the semester. One RA is on duty each night from 7:00 PM until 8:00 AM and will conduct rounds on each floor of all residence halls.

What date can I move in? Can I stay in the Peabody Living Center during breaks?

Students living in the Peabody Living Center will be able to move in as early as Monday, August 21st2017. Details regarding move-in procedures and check-in times will be sent to your JHU email address.

The residence halls and Peabody Living Center are open for Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, and Spring Break. During Winter Break the entire campus will close, but residents of the Peabody Living Center may request permission to stay through the break. The residence halls, including the Peabody Living Center, will close for the academic year at 12pm on May 18th. At that time all students who are not participating in commencement will need to move out of their rooms.

Can I ship my belongings before I move in?

Our mail room does not have the space to accept packages before students arrive.  You will need to wait until after you move onto campus and obtain your mail box number before you can begin receiving packages.

My flight arrives before my scheduled move-in. Can I move in early?

We do not allow students to move in early.  There are many hotels in the area you are able to stay at until your designated move-in time.

I am coming in after move-in hours. What do I do?

Arriving outside of your assigned check-in times can present a substantial inconvenience to you, as you will not be able to sign out a room key or be issued a keycard until the next business day. Students are strongly encouraged to plan their travel accordingly to ensure that they arrive during their scheduled check-in time.

Should circumstances require that you arrive after your designated check-in time, then you will need to secure accommodations in a local hotel for the night. You can then sign out a key during one of the subsequent check-ins, or visit the Office of Residence Life during normal business hours.

Can I practice in my room?

Yes, you may practice in your room. However, to keep the environment quiet for all residents, you may only practice in your room from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.

Will there be quiet hours?

All residents are expected to keep noise at a level that is not disruptive to those living around them. Quiet hours begin at 10:00 PM on weeknights and 11:00 PM on weekends. Quiet hours end at 9:00 AM. Floors are free to extend quiet hours but may not reduce them.

Where can I do laundry?

The laundry facility is located on the ground floor of the Peabody Living Center. There are multiple machines in the washing room, which allows for easy and convenient use. Machines can be used with either quarters or a J-Card, which can be pre-loaded with money.

Can I cook in my room? What meal plans are available?

Due to fire codes and safety issues, cooking is not permitted in the Peabody Living Center. However, there is a full kitchen in the undergraduate residence hall that is accessible 24 hours per day for all residents. If you choose to live in the Peabody Living Center, you are required to purchase one of the two meal plans listed below:

Plan 19 – $6,470/year – $3,235/semester
19 meals per week (1 meal for every meal period) plus $200 dining dollars per semester

Plan 14 – $6,470/year – $3,235 /semester
14 meals per week (2 meals each day) plus $400 dining dollars per semester

Plan 7 – Only available to graduate and commuter students – $3,235/year – $1,617.50/ semester
7 meals per week (1 meal each day) plus $200 dining dollars per semester

Breakfast, Lunch, and dinner are served daily during the week. Brunch and dinner are available on Saturday and Sunday. All meals are available as an all-you-care-to-eat buffet. The dining hall staff works diligently to provide a varied menu and constantly welcomes comments from students to guide its efforts. In addition, special meals can be arranged for students with specific dietary needs.

I have specific dietary needs, can the dining plan accommodate me?

We work very closely with Sage Dining Services to continuously improve the delivery and quality of food services to our campus community. You will find offerings at each meal period designed to accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions. You can view current menus at http://www.sagedining.com/menus/peabody and can use the allergen filter to view items that meet your specific needs. If you have any concerns about your dietary needs, then please let us know and we will work with you to make sure that we are able to meet those needs.

Is there internet in the building?

Yes, the entire Conservatory is equipped with WiFi.

I’m over 21, can I have alcohol on campus?

No resident or guest, regardless of age, is permitted to consume or possess any alcohol or alcohol containers, whether empty or full, in the residence halls or the Peabody Living Center. However, there are plenty of restaurants and bars around Peabody that one can be social.

Is smoking permitted in the Peabody Living Center?

Smoking is prohibited inside the Peabody Conservatory buildings, including, but not limited to, practice rooms, studios, residence hall rooms, lounges, bathrooms, stairwells, and elevators. In addition, leaning out of windows to smoke is also prohibited. Individuals who smoke must do so outside in the designated smoking area located behind the cafeteria overlooking Centre Street.

Am I allowed to have guests?

Residents are permitted to house overnight guests in their rooms provided that they first notify their Resident Assistant, and the Residence Life Office.

Can I bring a car?

Peabody does not impose any restrictions on students bringing cars to Baltimore, although parking can be a challenge. Local garages can cost up to $150/month, and must be contracted independently. Peabody has a small garage available for single-day use, but it is not available for monthly rentals.

You can also get a permit to park on the street.  You will need to obtain a letter from the Residence Life Office stating your residency, and will need to go to the Motor Vehicle Association to obtain a parking permit.  This costs about $20 for the year.

Being in a downtown setting, you will find that you can easily manage day to day life in Baltimore without a private vehicle, and in many ways a vehicle can be more hassle than it is worth. For this reason, most of our students choose not to bring a vehicle with them.

Is there a storage facility on campus?

Unfortunately there is no storage facility on campus. There are a number of storage facilities in the area, and there is space in your room to store items as well.

What jobs are available on campus?

There are jobs in the library, mail room, cafeteria, stage crew, plant ops, academic affairs, student affairs, computer lab, box office, security, and faculty office. Job priority is given to students with work study.

 

Where does the shuttle go? Where does the escort van go?

The escort van’s area of service is north to North Ave, south to Pratt St, west to Utah St, and east to Fallsway Rd.

The Hopkins Shuttle’s map can be found here: http://www.parking.jhu.edu/shuttles_jhmi_homewood.html

Peabody is also located next to the Washington Monument (northbound) and Centre Street (southbound) stops on the Charm City Circulator’s Purple Route. For more information regarding this free city service, or for route maps, visit http://www.charmcitycirculator.com/.
