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.)

Summer Series

This summer, selected information sessions will be geared towards specific aspects of the undergraduate experience at Hopkins. These summer series programs go beyond the traditional information session for an in-depth discussion of the topics listed below. The visit includes an extended hour-and-a-half information session featuring current students, faculty members, or advisers in that area of study, as well as an optional “hot spot” tour following the session that will focus on areas around campus related to that topic. (A traditional campus tour is also available before the session at 9:00 a.m.) Click on each link below to register:

Friday, June 30: This session is at capacity.
Friday, July 14: Humanities at Hopkins
Friday, July 21: Business (note that there is not a hot spot tour offered for this event)
Friday, July 28: Women in STEM
Friday, August 4: Pre-Health at Hopkins

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. Group accommodations are based on availability given general visitor volume. 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.

Please note: We do not accommodate requests for group tours from for-profit organizations that charge participants.

Class Visits

Round out your campus visit by sitting in on a class. See our dynamic faculty in action and discover how our students learn. It’s one of the best ways to explore the academic experience at Johns Hopkins and get an inside look at what it’s like to be a student here.

Class visits have concluded for the spring 2017 semester and will resume again in the fall.

Breaking Down the College Search: Application Workshops: : July 11, July 26, and August 10

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. Learn more and RSVP: https://apply.jhu.edu/summerworkshop.

Open House Events

Geared towards high school juniors and seniors, Open House events provide a sneak peek into life as a Hopkins student.

Open House opportunities have concluded for this year. Please check back next fall for more information.

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.

Overnight Visits have concluded for this year. Please check back next fall for more information.

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.

Engineering Tours have concluded for fall 2016

Admissions Interviews

On-campus interviews, like off-campus alumni interviews, are an optional part of the admissions process and are for rising seniors with an interest in applying to Johns Hopkins. All interview slots are full for the summer. Please check back in the fall, when additional spots will open for applicants. Registration is required—when available, sign up for your campus interview by registering for a campus visit and selecting the campus interview option.

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.
