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.

College Ready Guide

Blue Jay Families have an opportunity to receive the College Ready 2021 guide for free! The guide addresses top-of-mind concerns including packing, money, staying connected, promoting responsible independence, and supporting academic success. Each chapter is written by a college or university official who works with parents to enhance student success at the collegiate level. To receive your copy, please click here and use the promo code Hopkins2021 at checkout.


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.
