We love having all four beautiful seasons here in Baltimore, but are so excited to welcome summer to Hopkins! It’s when we cheer on the Orioles baseball team, attend free concerts, eat amazing food in the different Baltimore neighborhoods, and so much more. A favorite summer activity of ours is welcoming thousands of prospective students and families to campus. If you’ll be joining us this summer, check out these tips on how to make the most of your visit:

Plan Ahead: So, you’ve decided to check out our campus. Next step—when to come, and what to see? Check out our website for visit options and events.

Get the Student Perspective: Our students are the best way to learn more about the university, so take advantage of their input! On campus? Ask your tour guide, or any student, about his or her experience. Or, ask away virtually at—you’ll get a response from a current Hopkins student!

Go Exploring: Our guided campus tours will take you around Homewood, or you can feel free to grab a map at the front desk of our admissions office and go sight-seeing on your own. We suggest stopping by Brody Learning Commons for a delicious coffee or treat at or picking up a souvenir from our campus bookstore!

Grab Some Grub: Hopkins was recently ranked second on the list of the nation’s top colleges for food, so go for a taste-test at one of our awesome dining options. There are also many excellent places to grab a bite in the surrounding neighborhoods, so ask around for some suggestions (we have plenty).

Be a Tourist: We love calling Baltimore our home, and are very fortunate to have the resources of a bustling city right in our backyard. For some references and recommendations, check out this blog. A staff favorite? It’s tough to choose, but we recommend dining in Little Italy and enjoying the sights at the Inner Harbor!

HAVE FUN! We are thrilled to welcome you to Johns Hopkins and hope you love it as much as we do.
