Orientation and Move-In

The Orientation and First-Year Experience Office provides support for new students and their families to encourage and successful and enjoyable first year at JHU. Orientation occurs immediately following move-in to the residence halls.

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation 2017 is Saturday, August 26-Wednesday, August 30. The five-day orientation program will help prepare your student to successfully transition to JHU. Your Blue Jay will learn about academics and student life, meet with an advisor and a First Year Mentor (current student), and connect with their new community.

Parent & Family Orientation

We encourage you to attend Parent and Family Orientation 2017 (Friday, August 25-Sunday, August 27) to learn more about all the JHU has to offer your student! Families learn about academic and student support services, hear from university administrators, and meet fellow Blue Jay Families.

Pre-Orientation Programs

If your student is participating in a pre-orientation program, you do not have to return to campus for orientation. We have a Parent & Family Orientation program just for you on Saturday, August 19.
