Parent and Family Guide

The JHU Parent and Family Guide is released each year and provides a broad overview of the campus and relevant campus and community resources.


The Blue Jay Family Flyer is published monthly and provides well-timed updates on student life, academic support services, family events, involvement opportunities, and much more. The Blue Jay Family Connection is published each semester by the Vice Provost of Student Affairs. JHU also communicates campus updates as needed throughout the year. Family members will automatically receive newsletters and email communication at the email address provided by your student on the Student Information System (SIS).

If you are a family member of an incoming student, you will also receive the Blue Jay Family Welcome, a series of weekly emails during the summer leading up to your Blue Jay’s arrival on campus.

FLI Compass Webinar
Please join us to engage with a panel of FLI students, staff, and parents on what to anticipate during the winter break and firsthand experiences in supporting and connecting with students during this extended time when students often return home. FLI students frequently share that their families are a primary source of support; and yet, winter break can be a challenging experience to navigate for families and students. At times, students return home with new and different experiences, boundaries, and expectations after some time away at college. In this session, our panelists will share how to make the most out of the winter break as a time of rest and reconnection to support students midway through the academic year.
