L’université Johns-Hopkins (Johns Hopkins University, ou JHU) est une université privée américaine, située à Baltimore dans le Maryland. Elle possède également des campus à Washington, à Bologne en Italie, à Singapour et à Nankin en Chine. Elle doit son nom à Johns Hopkins, un entrepreneur fortuné qui a légué à sa mort 7 millions de dollars à l'université.

Comptant parmi les universités les plus prestigieuses des États-Unis (surtout pour ses facultés de médecine et de santé publique, ainsi que pour son école d'affaires internationales), l'institution se définit comme la première « université de recherche » du pays. Au début de son histoire, elle s'est principalement inspirée de l'université de Heidelberg et du modèle d'instruction allemand de Wilhelm von Humboldt. En 2019, 39 lauréats du prix Nobel ont leur nom associé à l'université.
