About the Campus
Montgomery County Campus

Rockville, MD 20850
Located in the heart of one of the nation’s leading biotechnology clusters, the Montgomery County Campus at the Shady Grove Life Sciences Center is the result of a cooperative effort involving Johns Hopkins, the Montgomery County government, and many of the Technology Council firms in the I-270 corridor. Since opening for classes in 1988, the campus has become a major educational resource for Montgomery County and the surrounding Washington, DC, area. Facilities and services include 40 classrooms, a state-of-the-art teaching wet lab, four computer labs, a distance learning classroom, a library with electronic search capabilities, a 300-seat auditorium, 150-seat presentation room, faculty and student lounges, and vending areas. The success of the programs offered at the Montgomery County Campus by four Johns Hopkins divisions resulted in the construction of the Academic and Research Building, which opened in January 2000.
