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

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 applicants to try out life at Johns Hopkins is by spending the night with a current student host as part of the overnight program. Eat in the dining halls, attend campus events, and get the inside scoop on the residences halls.

Availability: Due to limited space, fall overnight programs are for current high school seniors only:

  • October 6, 2015 — This event is now full.
  • October 20, 2015

Breaking Down the College Search: Application Workshops

Geared towards 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 fit with an institution.

Applications Workshops are currently unavailable.

Hopkins Preview

Hopkins Previews feature an information session, campus tour, and current student panel.

Previews are held on selected Saturdays throughout the summer and are no longer available.

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.

Our professors are happy to accommodate prospective students and families; however, when attending a course approved for visitation, we do ask that you follow a few simple guidelines:

  • Arrive at least five minutes before the posted start time of the class.
  • Introduce yourself to the professor upon arrival.
  • Choose courses that fit your schedule so you can attend the entire class session. To prevent unnecessary disruption, please stay for the duration of the class.
  • Save all questions for the end of class.

Check out the list of classes that are open to visitors.
