Fall Overnight Program

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

This event may be impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Please check back for any updates, or sign up for our mailing list to stay up-to-date.

Program details

Notes about the Application

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the summer so we encourage students to apply as soon as possible. The typical deadline for application is in early September.

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 by mid-September to confirm your attendance and provide details about your stay on campus. Confirmations may take several weeks to be processed and space is limited. Please note that participation in the Fall Overnight is not an indication of any admissions decision and your application to Johns Hopkins will not be negatively impacted if you are unable to attend this program.


Students attending the Fall Overnight Program are invited to stay overnight in a residence hall room with a current Johns Hopkins student host for the duration of the program. If you have any special requirements, please let us know on your registration form. If parents would like to visit campus or Baltimore and are staying overnight while students are attending the program, they must arrange their own hotel accommodations.
