Information Technology

We ensure that students, faculty, and staff have the technology resources and support they need to learn, communicate, work, and discover.

Services Overview

Technology is a vital tool for public health professionals and students at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Students can look to the Bloomberg School IT team for the computing, networking, and communications resources and support they need, including specialized analytical and productivity software.

New students are issued a Johns Hopkins Microsoft Office 365 account for access to email and the Microsoft Office software suite. They can also gain access to the MyJHSPH (SharePoint) intranet, a one-stop resource for group collaboration, academic announcements and calendars, secure document storage, and help-desk support.

Wireless Network

Information Technology provides a secure wireless network for JHSPH faculty, staff, and students. This network provides connectivity from anywhere within most JHSPH locations. There are two forms of wireless access:

Secured Wireless

Secured wireless access is encrypted and allows full access to the Internet and internal JHSPH resources. This also allows for wireless printing for students. A JHSPH account is required to use the secured wireless service.

Guest Wireless

Guest wireless access is freely available to anyone with a Wi-Fi enabled device and provides restricted access to the Internet. A guest wireless connection is not encrypted, so guests should assume that all use could be monitored by unauthorized parties.

MyJHSPH Intranet

MyJHSPH is the school's secure intranet for information and collaboration within the JHSPH Community.

Computer Recommendations

Students attending JHSPH make frequent use of their computers for research, writing and note taking. The Information Technology team strongly urges all students to upgrade their computers (or purchase new ones) to meet the following technical criteria, ensuring them seamless access to the School's networks and resources. Enrolled students are eligible for significant discounts on equipment when purchasing new systems.
