Large amounts of waste are generated during move-in and move-out. To help reduce your waste, impact on the environment, and money spent on dorm necessities, we’ve created several resources and programs that’ll help you make more sustainable decisions and purchases.


Check out our Green Move-In Guide for tips and tricks on how to make your arrival at JHU as sustainable as possible.

Each year at the end of the spring semester, Hopkins hosts a Green Move-Out program to help reduce waste and give back to the community. This program is available to all students living on and off campus. Goodwill trucks are located in strategic locations on campus for students to drop off unwanted items like clothing, housewares and books, excluding furniture and mattresses. Inside residence hall lobbies, bins are available for students to drop off unopened, non-perishable foods and unopened toiletries. These items are donated to a local Baltimore City shelter, Project PLASE.

Due to COVID, plans for Green Move-Out are on hold. Please check back for updates.
