University Student Services is comprised of seven main areas:

You can read more about each area below and visit their websites to learn more about their programming, resources, and support services for Hopkins students.

Student Affairs

Student Affairs strengthens the value of a JHU education, making college a more memorable life experience by fostering connected relationships, holistic self-discovery, and mastery of relevant personal skills that transform individuals and serve the greater good. The offices and departments that comprise Student Affairs, including Hopkins Dining, Community Living, Leadership Engagement and Experiential Development (LEED), and many others, seek to educate students beyond the classroom. Student Affairs staff are tasked with helping students to deepen self-awareness, develop relationships, nurture inclusion, and find fulfillment in the collegiate experience to ensure lifelong success and meaningful contributions to our global community.

Admissions & Student Financial Support

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is the gateway through which prospective students learn about academics and student life at Hopkins, with resources for first-year and transfer applicants. Undergraduate Admissions staff guide prospective students through the application process, provide information about tuition, financial aid, and scholarships, and answer questions about the student experience on and around Homewood campus.

Student Financial Support provides instruction and resources for first-time financial aid applicants, as well as current students renewing their aid. Students can meet with financial aid advisers, learn more about different types of aid, and find guidance for managing the cost of studying abroad or moving off-campus.

Diversity & Inclusion

Through an intersectional lens, the Center for Diversity & Inclusion (CDI) fosters a sense of belonging for students by providing intentional engagement and holistic support. Hopkins students are empowered to develop a sense of self, work across differences, and create equitable cultural change. CDI encompasses the offices of Gender & Sexuality Resources, Multicultural Affairs, and Religious & Spiritual Life, and their staff provide advocacy, community, education, and other support to our diverse student population.

Integrative Learning & Life Design

Integrative Learning & Life Design (ILLD) comprises 15 departments and centers that orchestrate programs and services to bridge curricular and experiential learning with professional ambitions and mentoring for all undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and alumni across the university’s nine schools. ILLD staff believe that by integrating immersive experiences, connections, and mentoring into learning, we can ensure that every JHU student and alum has the same opportunity to achieve their life aspirations regardless of background, field of study, or social capital.

Office of the University Registrar

In alignment with the mission and values of the Johns Hopkins University, The Office of the University Registrar (OUR) maintains the integrity of student records, ensures institutional policy compliance, provides guidance and support to the divisional registrar offices, collaborates with university-wide stakeholders, and enhances the service capability of student systems in support of faculty teaching and student learning.

Student Enrollment & Account Management (SEAM)

The Office of Student Enrollment and Account Management (SEAM) centralizes processes and systems in three areas: student accounts, registration, and financial aid. Rather than calling or emailing various offices or departments to ask questions or resolve issues, students can request support for registering for classes or renewing their financial aid through SEAM.

Student Health & Well-Being

Student Health & Well-Being (SHWB) coordinates mental health care, primary care, disability services, and well-being resources for Hopkins students across the university’s nine schools. SHWB’s staff, which includes physicians, counselors, dietitians, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, health educators, and other experts, is committed to providing students with tools and knowledge that empower them to prioritize their well-being and thrive mentally, physically, and emotionally. Delivering relevant programming for students of historically underserved and underrepresented minority populations is also a key priority.
