With the expansion of in-person activities on campus this spring and further expansion planned for the fall, the health of our community continues to remain our top priority. Our collective safety requires everyone to consistently adhere to health and safety guidelines outlined in the Return to Campus guide, including the robust testing program that has been implemented on campus.

You are also encouraged to read and follow the precautions described in the JHU Social Compact. Please remember the vital role that you play in keeping our community safe—JHNeedsU to help us protect each other!

Student facilities

  • Brody Learning Commons, Milton S. Eisenhower Library, and the Hutzler Reading Room are open with restricted density and limited hours.
  • The O’Connor Recreation Center is open by reservation only.

Student organizations

  • In-person student activities remain restricted by campus guidelines governing physical distancing and limits on gathering size (as of March 31, the gathering limits are set at 25 people outdoors, 10 people indoors). We will update you if these restrictions change.


  • Men’s and women’s lacrosse is underway for the spring 2021 season with safety precautions to protect athletes from contracting and spreading COVID-19. To start the season, fans will not be permitted to attend lacrosse games at Homewood Field. In addition, no tailgating will be permitted at any location on the Homewood campus.

Volunteer opportunity

  • Students are invited to volunteer as greeters, guides, runners, or observers at the vaccination clinic at M&T Bank Stadium to increase the number of Marylanders who are protected against COVID-19. More information
