HOME: Hopkins Overnight Multicultural Experience

Thursday, October 12–Saturday, October 14

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is proud to present HOME—an on-campus, overnight program connecting African American or black, Latinx/Hispanic, Native American, and multiracial high school seniors to the clubs, organizations, and resources that bring together our multicultural community.

Applications must be received no later than September 15; however, students are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible, as space for the program is limited and admission to HOME will be granted on a rolling, first-come, first-served basis.

Notes About the Application

An application for HOME is required. Click here to complete an application. Applicants should also upload their high school transcript on the application page in order for their application to be considered complete.

If you have any questions, please email

Each year, we aim to bring to campus a diverse group of students from different backgrounds and experiences. Due to limited space, this is a selective program and we cannot admit all of the qualified applicants who wish to attend. Participation in HOME 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 HOME. Don’t hesitate to contact us at if you have any questions.

Please do not make travel arrangements for the program until you have been contacted about your application status.


Students attending the HOME 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 HOME, they must arrange their own hotel accommodations (see Information for Parents below).
