ENTERING THE UNIVERSITY

Your residence hall location is Wolman Hall, which is on E. 34th Street, between N. Charles and St. Paul Streets. Dormitory check-in will be held here.

CHECKING IN TO THE DORM

Students and parents will be greeted by Hopkins staff outside of Wolman Hall for check-in. Students should first check in to their housing assignments beginning at 12:00 PM. Drivers should drop off their student at Wolman Hall, and then proceed to park their cars along St. Paul or Charles St., or if it is after 1:30 PM, in the University Baptist Church parking lot. From there, parents will be able to walk back to the dorm.
During dormitory check-in, students will receive access cards, lanyards and their room keys. After students check in, they should proceed to their rooms and drop off any belongings. Once settled, students and parents should walk to 3505 N. Charles Street for Academic Check-in.  

ACADEMIC CHECK IN

Students will also receive their J-cards (student ID) along with a folder containing important phone numbers, a calendar of events, along with campus maps, a list of restaurants around campus and a guide to local places of worship. In addition, students will receive their course room assignments. Students should bring copies of any missing documents that were not already uploaded to their account (see the required forms link to the right above) and their medical insurance cards.

ACADEMIC AND RESIDENTIAL INFORMATION SESSIONS

Please join us in the Bloomberg Auditorium for introductions to the staff and a brief orientation to the academic and residential programs. Two information sessions held for residential students, the first at 2:00PM, the second at 5:15PM. An information session for commuter students will be held at 2:45PM at Bloomberg Auditorium.

TOURS OF CAMPUS

Every hour on the hour, weather permitting and between 12:00 and 4:00PM, campus tours will be provided. Tours will leave from the carport at 3505 N. Charles.
