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.

Open House Events

Click here to register.

Join the Homewood community for our Fall Open House on Saturday, October 1, 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 applicants to try out life at Johns Hopkins is by spending the night with a current student host as part of the overnight program.

Availability

Selected Tuesdays in the fall.

Registration will open early August.

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.

Engineering tours for fall 2015 have concluded. We still offer many other options to see the Homewood campus; please refer to our daily Information Sessions and Guided Tours to schedule your visit.

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 no longer being offered for this application cycle.

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.
