Your residence hall location is Wolman Hall, which is on E. 34th Street, between N. Charles and St. Paul Streets.


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 12:30 pm. Drivers should drop off their student at Wolman Hall, and then proceed to park their cars in the University Baptist Church parking lot. From here, parents will be able to walk back to the dorm.

During check-in, students will receive access cards, dining cards and their room keys. They 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).

After students check in, they should proceed to their rooms and drop off any belongings. Once settled, students and parents are free to have lunch at one of the many places around campus or head straight to the Wolman Hall Movie Theatre for a brief academic information session.


Please join us in the Wolman Hall Movie Theatre for introductions to the staff and a brief orientation to the academic programs. Information sessions will be held once every hour on the half hour starting at 1:30PM.


Professors have identified the books students will need. They are available for purchase at the Hopkins Barnes and Noble Bookstore, located at the corner of St. Paul and 33rd Streets. Click here to purchase your books in advance and pick them up at the bookstore upon arrival. You will need your course number to determine the required books.



If a problem should arise on orientation day, please call the Summer Discovery Residential Program at 410-516-5803.
