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 Family Engagement 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.
