Blue Jay Families

Welcome to Johns Hopkins University—your student’s home away from home.

As a Blue Jay Family, you play an essential role in your student’s success. The office of Parent and Family Relations is here to provide resources and support as you and your student navigate the university and the new and dynamic experiences that occur in the college environment. The office of Parents Programs and Giving engages families in ways to support and enhance the Homewood student experience.

Questions?

For general inquiries and concerns, contact Parent and Family Relations at 410-516-7355 or email bluejayfamilies@jhu.edu.

For giving and leadership opportunities, contact Parents Programs and Giving at 410-516-3413 or email parents@jhu.edu.

It won’t be too long before your Blue Jay reaches out to you for help or advice, so we encourage you to learn as much as you can about JHU and become an informed partner in your student’s education.

Finally, we encourage you to get involved at JHU and visit our campus. When you are here, let us know. We would love to meet you. We are proud to call you our Blue Jay Family! Go Hop!
