Be sure to review our COVID-19 safety guidelines below and register for your visit in advance to ensure space is available.

COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

All visitors to the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus are expected to adhere to the following safety guidelines:

  1. Visitors MUST be registered for a campus visit. At this time, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions cannot accommodate walk-in students and families for listed events.
  2. All prospective students are limited to two guests due to space limitations on campus.
  3. While indoors, all visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask that fully covers their nose and mouth.
  4. Designated restrooms will be available for guests on the first floor of Mason Hall where you will check in for the day.
  5. All guests must comply with posted guidelines on campus and any safety requests from admissions staff and tour guides.
  6. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, and reserve the right to alter or cancel any visitor experience, if necessary. If we do so, we will contact you via email and text messages.

If you are experiencing any symptoms, not feeling well, or have had a known COVID-19 exposure, we ask that you please stay home and reschedule your visit.

In addition to reading through the JHU Coronavirus Information website, please be sure to also stay up-to-date on the latest CDC and Baltimore City guidelines.

Preparing for Your Visit

Tours are rain or shine, so make sure you check the weather forecast before your visit and dress appropriately. In the event of inclement weather (severe thunder and lightning), we may cancel tours for the safety of our guides and visitors. You will be notified via email if we need to cancel your tour for any reason.

Self-Guided Walking Tours

If there are no more available tours on the day you are interested in visiting, we welcome you to campus for a self-guided walking tour. Instructions will be available in the Mason Hall Lobby when you arrive, including a QR registration form to let us know you visited and a link to our virtual self-guided tour.
