Johns Hopkins University’s highest priority is the safety and well-being of our faculty, staff, students, trainees and visitors. Consistent with expert public health guidance related to the spread of COVID-19, the following guidelines will be in effect Wednesday, March 11 through at least April 12, 2020. The guidelines will be reevaluated on a regular basis, are subject to change, and may be extended beyond April 12, 2020 depending on developments over the coming days and weeks.

Undergraduate Students: All undergraduate classes (on both the Homewood and Peabody campuses) are cancelled from Wednesday, March 11 through Friday March 13 including undergraduate labs, research for credit, practicums, etc. Undergraduate classes will resume on March 23, following Spring Break, as remote classes taught online. Faculty resources to facilitate online teaching are discussed below.

Undergraduate students residing in university housing are strongly encouraged to leave campus and not return following Spring Break. They should take all materials they will need to resume coursework remotely and any other important or valuable items. They should organize any items they leave behind so those things can be packed and moved if necessary. Undergraduate students residing in university housing who are unable to leave campus or who expect to return to campus following Spring Break (before April 12):

All university-sponsored or organized undergraduate student events are suspended. All university-sponsored or organized undergraduate student travel (including travel sponsored or organized by student organizations, regardless of funding source) is suspended. Undergraduate students with questions about these Guidelines should contact Student Affairs.
