Faculty Resources for Retirees and Prospective Retirees

A group of JHU retirees or prospective retirees

The Johns Hopkins University Retiree Program – The Johns Hopkins University Retiree Program recognizes retired faculty and staff as valued members of the Johns Hopkins community. No doubt you have made important contributions to the university’s achievements. As you move on to the next stage of your life, please stay connected to Hopkins! The university retiree program includes special privileges, events, and resources—all described here and in the JHU Retiree Handbook.

Privileges – As a valued member of the Johns Hopkins University community, you are eligible for several privileges after you retire. They include:

  • Email: maintain a JHU address
  • Tuition: receive tuition remission on credit, non-credit, and enrichment courses for you, your spouse/domestic partner, and dependents.
  • Memberships: join the Johns Hopkins Club and use the libraries and recreation center
  • Discounts: receive discounts on amusement parks, local attractions, travel destinations, and others
  • Community Engagement and Volunteering: contribute to holiday programs that assist local families and seniors in need and consider volunteering opportunities.

Retiree Events – Each issue of PrimeTime News includes details about a retiree event, such as a day trip, visit to museum, book talk with JHU Press authors, or the holiday reception. We make every effort to accommodate any special needs, depending on the event.

You can also reunite with friends and former colleagues at university-wide activities such as Hopkins Night at Camden Yards, Hopkins Night at Ripken Stadium, and others.

Happenings at Hopkins – Enjoy events scheduled for the Hopkins community. When ordering tickets, you might mention that you are a JHU retiree to see if they have a discounted price.

Community Engagement – The Office of Work, Life and Engagement runs several programs during the year that you can contribute to. 

PrimeTime News (JHU Retiree Newsletter) – The retiree newsletter is published and mailed to your home address four times per year. Each issue features event announcements, news, updates on retiree benefits, and other information from Johns Hopkins. Retirees with an email on file will receive Prime Time News electronically in advance of a paper copy. If you would like to be added to the retiree email list, please send your email address to retirees@jhu.edu.

Pre-Retirement Resources – Retirement is one of the major life transitions you will experience. Because so many changes occur at this time, the JHU Office of Work, Life and Engagement Team would like to help you plan proactively.
