What is JHED?

JHED stands for Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory. It is an online, systematic contact information source for all the students admitted in Johns Hopkins University. It provides access to various university resources such as JHU SIS, myJHU Portal, JHU email and much more.

To access these resources, you will require a JHED Login ID or JHED ID or JHED LID. It is the Username provided to students to log into the JHED system. New students will get an email containing all the details related to their JHED ID. Johns Hopkins University requires students to use JHED IDs for authentication and allows them access to the resources and tools.

With the JHED ID, students can access their email, check/print their class schedule, register for classes, check confirmations, get grade reports, view bills and much more.
