Family Weekend is an annual Johns Hopkins University tradition that provides an opportunity for families of undergraduate students at the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering to connect with their student and the larger Hopkins community by participating in a series of engaging activities and programming.

Family Weekend 2019 will be held Friday, October 25 through Sunday, October 27.


We are working on a fun-filled calendar. Please check back soon.


Registration will be available in July.


Parking in the South Garage and San Martin Center Garage on the Homewood campus will both be available for families. Additional information about local transportation can be found on our Transportation Services website.
