Campus Visits

Our beautiful campus is undergoing some improvements this summer. We apologize for any inconvenience caused during your visit—we’re building an even better home for our students.

The best way to get a feel for life as a Hopkins student is to spend some time on our 140-acre undergraduate Homewood campus, located in Baltimore, Maryland. See below for a full listing of on-campus visit opportunities or click on a date to begin planning your visit.

Information Sessions and Guided Tours

Weekdays and selected Saturdays

Information sessions led by an admissions representative and guided tours with a current Johns Hopkins student are offered most weekdays and on selected Saturdays in the fall and summer. Information sessions focus on academics, student life, and the application process. Campus tours will showcase many of our academic and student life buildings. (Please note that, due to security measures, campus tours will not enter the residence halls. Click here to see more of the residence halls in our student-guided video tours of their own dorm rooms and apartments.)

Information sessions and tours begin in the lobby of Mason Hall. Check in at the admissions desk upon arrival. Visitors should arrive 10 to 15 minutes before the start of the tour and session and wear comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. Please allow at least two hours for your visit. For directions and parking information, see Visiting the Homewood Campus.

Reservations are recommended for tours and information sessions, although walk-ins are accepted. To register, click on the day you would like to visit on the calendar. Visitors needing disability access or special accommodations must call (410) 516-8171 at least two weeks in advance, or be sure to make a note on their reservation form.

“When I visited Hopkins in the fall of my junior year, I knew the school matched up perfectly with my vision. The academic philosophy was what I craved…I felt like I could become part of a community here, that Hopkins could become home.”
—Dan F. ’17

Group Tours

Groups of 15 or more must complete this request form at least one month in advance. Due to the high volume of requests we receive and the limited availability of classroom space and student volunteers, priority will be given to students in grades nine through twelve who are traveling with a high school or organization focused on college preparation. Any questions may be directed to special.tours@jhu.edu.

Breaking Down the College Search: Application Workshops

Geared towards high school freshmen and sophomores, these limited-attendance programs will help you learn how to get started on the college search and application processes, as well as how to develop an application that best demonstrates your strengths and match with an institution.

Application Workshops have concluded for this year.

Open House Events

Click here to register.

Join the Homewood community for our Fall Open House on Saturday, September 17, 2016. Geared towards high school juniors and seniors, this event will provide a sneak peek into life as a Hopkins student.

While visiting campus, you’ll have the opportunity to attend an interdisciplinary presentation featuring faculty from various departments, meet current students, and learn more about our admissions and financial aid processes.

Reservations are required and must be made in advance. Click here to RSVP.

Overnight Visits

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 Fall Overnights Program. Eat in the dining halls, attend campus events, and check out the residences halls.

Availability: Due to limited space, overnight visits are for current high school seniors only and registration is required.

Engineering Tours

Engineering tours are offered at select periods during the year and focus on the resources and facilities available to Johns Hopkins undergraduates in the Whiting School of Engineering. These hour-long tours, leaving Mason Hall at 12:15 p.m., are led by current engineering students and feature a selection of engineering research labs that are not part of the standard campus tour.

Tours begin in the lobby of Mason Hall. Check in at the admissions desk upon arrival. Visitors should arrive 10 to 15 minutes before the start of the tour and wear comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. For directions and parking information, see Visiting the Homewood Campus.

Reservations are recommended for tours and information sessions, as space is limited. To register, click on the day you would like to visit on the calendar. Visitors needing disability access or special accommodations must call (410) 516-8171 at least two weeks in advance, or be sure to make a note on their reservation form.

Please note: If you would like to attend an information session, you may register for either time offered that day. If you would like to attend a regular tour as well as engineering, we recommend you choose the 3:00 p.m. tour to allow enough time in between.

Admissions Interviews

On-campus interviews, like off-campus alumni interviews, are for current applicants only and are an optional part of the admissions process.

Interviews typically address your academic background, goals, interests, and what you would contribute to the campus community. More informative than evaluative, these conversations will also allow you time to ask questions of your interviewer and learn about his/her Johns Hopkins experience.

Interviews are only available from September-February. Beginning in September, appointments are available on selected dates at 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., noon, 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Registration is required—sign up for your campus interview by registering for a campus visit and selecting the campus interview option.

Class Visits

Sitting in on a class is a great way to round out your visit. It can also be one of the best ways to explore a current student’s academic experience and get an inside look at what it’s like to learn at Hopkins.

Spring classes have concluded for this year. Please check back in the fall for class visit opportunities.
