Life Design Lab at Homewood
Update on Our Spring Services
Although the Life Design Lab at Homewood is physically closed in accordance with the guidelines from Johns Hopkins University, the state of Maryland and the CDC due to COVID-19, we are here for you virtually.
As you navigate through this page and others within the LDL@HW website, you will find many ways to connect directly with your Life Design Educator (through frequent virtual office hours), their programming (through Handshake and our events listings) and their experience and knowledge (through fresh content published daily).
We want to hear from you, so follow us on social media and let us know how you are pursuing meaningful work!
Especially during this unprecedented semester, we encourage you to engage us with your questions and requests: students, find your Life Design Educator or visit our virtual drop in hours (11am-4pm, M-F) ; employers can reach us at our recruiting email address; and for all other inquiries, please email our main email (monitored daily).
The Life Design Lab at Homewood supports and serves all Krieger and Whiting undergraduates and masters students, regardless of post-graduate plans. Life design educators are embedded within academic departments and centers across the Whiting School of Engineering and Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, which allows students to more easily access life design programs and courses, experiential learning, and connections with alumni and employers.
