The Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg Center at 555 Pennsylvania Ave. has officially opened its doors, welcoming students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests into the university’s new home in Washington, D.C. The building ushers in a new era for the university in the heart of the nation’s capital — and will soon also be home to JHU’s newest academic division, a School of Government and Policy.

Among the state-of-the-art building’s features are 38 classrooms, rooftop terraces, and a 375-seat theater.

The Hopkins Bloomberg Center brings new purpose and possibility to the university’s longstanding mission to connect the worlds of research and policy. In this new location — and building on the well-established reputation of the School of Advanced International Studies in Washington policy circles — Hopkins will educate future leaders and innovators, convene a range of viewpoints to foster discovery and dialogue, and create a vibrant new space for artistic expression and performance.

“The opening of the Hopkins Bloomberg Center marks a significant moment in the life of our university. The new center will deepen our presence in D.C. at a time when society is struggling to come together to solve problems and seize opportunities to advance the common good,” said Johns Hopkins University President Ron Daniels.
