Fall Overnight Program

Stay tuned for fall 2019 dates

One of the best ways for prospective students to really get a feel for life at Johns Hopkins is by spending the night with a current student host as part of the overnight program. Eat in the dining halls, attend campus events, and check out the residence halls.

Due to limited space, the Fall Overnight Program is for current high school seniors only and an application is required. If you have any questions, please email

Program details

The overnight program begins at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday. Registration opens at 1:00 p.m. Although the program officially ends after breakfast the following day, you are welcome to visit classes throughout the morning. Luggage will be stored at Mason Hall until noon on Wednesday.

Reservations for the Fall Overnight Program are required. You are not confirmed for an overnight visit until you receive a personalized confirmation email from our office indicating your attendance. DO NOT book travel plans prior to receiving a confirmation email. If we are able to approve a spot for you, we will contact you to confirm your attendance and provide details about your stay on campus. Confirmations may take several days to be processed and space is limited. You will receive an email from our office in the case that we are not able to accommodate your request.
