What is Jhed?

JHED is an abbreviation for Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory and is an online and reliable source to get contact information of any staff, faculty, or student of Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.

JHED plays a very important role on the myJH portal. It ensures that the school can validate, identity, and personalize services for you.

Do note that JHED ID, JHED Login ID, and JHED LID can be used interchangeably. Therefore, it should not be mistaken to mean different things. With the JHED ID and password, you can use it to access many of the resources at Hopkins. Examples of the resources include employee payroll systems, course registration, email, and course registration. The login details are all you need to sign into myJH.

Activating your JHED ID

Now that you now have your Jhed ID, as a first-time user, you will need to activate it before you can start using it as a login on My JH Portal or any other supported systems.

  • First, you will need to go to the My JH activation page.
  • Enter your Login ID (LID) or JHED as you may call it.
  • Complete the captcha. This may come in form of an image in which you are to enter specific text in the field.
