The Big Berks 2020 will take place on the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus, 3400 N. Charles St. Baltimore, MD 21218, from May 28 to May 31. All conference attendees must organize their own lodging accommodation for the conference. A campus map can be viewed here. The main conference gatherings will take place in the area around Levering Hall on campus.
We have secured group rates at two nearby hotels. The Inn at the Colonnade Baltimore is located adjacent to campus. The Hotel Revival, located in the Mt. Vernon neighborhood of downtown Baltimore, is accessible to campus by bus. Additionally, we are providing dorm options. All hotel group rate and dorm housing must be secured by April 28, 2020 (one month prior to the conference). Our hotel group rates expire at that time, and dorm registration closes at that time.
Attendees are welcome to find alternative housing. However, if you do choose to stay in a hotel, we kindly request that it be a conference hotel, as the Berks is liable for the occupancy of a set number of rooms.

The JHU dorms are a really convenient, lost cost option. The dorms are a 5-10-minute walk from the center of campus, are dorm-key accessible, and staffed with security personnel. All dorms have bed linens and towels provided. Guests should bring their own personal toiletries and soap. Each dorm is equipped with separate air conditioning controls. Please remember that these rooms are college dorms and do not have the same facilities as a hotel. Breakfast will be offered in Nolan’s on 33rd, adjacent to the dorms. The cost of dorm rooms includes breakfast.
