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.)
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.
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.

Groups of 20 or more must e-mail their request to firstname.lastname@example.org at least one month in advance.
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 are led by current engineering students and feature a selection of engineering research labs that are not part of the standard campus tour.
Availability: Engineering tours are generally held in the fall and are not currently available. Please check back for more information.
Open House Events
Open House is held on campus each fall; please check back for more details.
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: Overnight visits are generally held in the fall and are not currently available. Please check back for more information.
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.
On-campus interviews are no longer available. Your application will not be negatively impacted in the event that you were unable to have an interview.
Visiting current courses is a great way to round out your college visit experience. It can also be one of the best ways to get a feel for what life is like as a Johns Hopkins student. Our professors are happy to accommodate prospective students and families. When possible, please arrive a few minutes early to the class to introduce yourself to the professor. You should only select classes that you will be able to stay for the entirety of, as it can be a distraction when guests leave the room in the middle of a class.
- No classes March 17-March 23.
- Classes may be limited on Friday, April 24 and on Mondays or Fridays surrounding a holiday.
- May 2 is the last day of classes for the spring semester.
