Alert

To support research at Johns Hopkins, the Restricted Data Room is open by appointment only. At this time, appointments are limited to faculty and graduate students. Please contact dataservices@jhu.edu for more information. All visitors will need to fully comply with the university’s COVID-19 campus health and safety guidelines.

Certain external providers of sensitive or proprietary data may require agreements to use their materials in a locked facility on computers with no internet or network access. The Restricted Data Room on the A-Level of Milton S. Eisenhower Library addresses this need, and is a means for researchers (faculty and graduate students), who do not have private offices and/or computing to store, acquire and use restricted-use data.  

Contact JHU Data Services if your project data requires restricted access. We can assist with reviewing the application process for obtaining data, setting up accounts on required software, and obtaining card-swipe access. 

The room can only be used by one researcher at a time. We keep a shared schedule to ensure that researchers do not overlap in their use. To request access to the Restricted Data Room, contact dataservices@jhu.edu or inquire at the Data Services Information Desk nearby.
