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

Please include the number of students, preferred date, and time of visit. Groups of 20 or more must email their request to special.tours@jhu.edu 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Class Visits

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.

All classes have ended for the spring semester. Check back again in the fall for an updated class visitation list.
