I have a relative or friend who wants to visit me. Can I have overnight guests?
Overnight visits are not permitted.
What if I want to visit family and friends outside of JHU?
Parents must request permission at least 24 hours in advance if their student plans an overnight visit to friends or relatives in the Baltimore area. Please provide the names, contact information, and dates of the visit in your written parental request. When leaving the campus of the Johns Hopkins University during the day or evening, students are required to notify a Resident Advisor by signing out and in upon their departure and return to campus.
Will I have access to a telephone?
Most students have cell phones, but our residence hall rooms are equipped with telephones. Students will be informed of their telephone number upon arrival at Hopkins. These phones cannot call outside of the University, but can receive all incoming calls, except collect calls. Pay phones for outside calls are available in the residence halls.
What if my friends and family want to send me a care package?
All mail to students should be addressed as follows:
Summer Pre-College Programs
Johns Hopkins University
Wolman Housing Office
3339 North Charles Street
Baltimore, Maryland 21218
What if there is an emergency and my family cannot get in touch with me?
The Residential Life staff can be reached at the Residential Life Office downstairs in Wolman Hall from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The telephone number of the office is 410-516-4890. However, the Residential Life staff is available after hours for emergencies and can be reached through security at 410-516-4600.
