New Student Orientation

Welcome to Johns Hopkins University!

On behalf of the University, we would like to welcome you and your family to Hopkins! Whether you’re a first-year student, a transfer student, or a parent/family member, the New Student Orientation team will help you settle into Homewood by providing information about campus resources and ways to get engaged in your new community. During this five-day program, students will get an overview of academics, student life, and what it takes to make a smooth transition to college. Additionally, a special program is offered for parents and families of incoming students during move-in.
