Howard University alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of the University will return to campus for a week of exciting and informative events beginning Saturday, October 15.

The University continues to maintain updated health safety precautions for in-person events on campus; those details along with the official Homecoming theme, schedule of events, and other information will be announced at a later date. As updates are released, the official Homecoming website will be updated.

While we are excited to plan for an in-person Homecoming, we must remain vigilant to changing health conditions due to COVID-19. If health conditions deteriorate or the large group gathering guidelines from the district government become more restrictive, we will have to pivot back to a virtual event.
