Stay Informed

Stay on top of the latest news, events, resources, and happenings at JHU.


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.

Family Handbook

The JHU Parent & Family Guide provides a broad overview of the campus and relevant campus and community resources. Please note, the 2017-2018 print version and a previous web version of the Family Handbook incorrectly listed Saturday, December 22 as the residence hall closure date for winter break. The correct date is Saturday, December 23. More information is available on page 48 of the guide.
