The campus visit is comprised of an information session, approximately 45 minutes in length, followed by a student-led campus tour, approximately 1 hour & 15 minutes and are geared toward prospective undergraduate students. Visitors should anticipate two hours total for both the information session and campus tour. Sessions and tours are held regularly throughout the year on weekdays and Saturday mornings, with the exception of the below listed University/Federal holidays. Additionally we are closed on Saturdays in January and December.
Space for the information session is limited and, thus, we require reservations and encourage you to register at least two weeks in advance. Given that each information session is directly followed by a campus tour, tours do NOT require separate reservations. Your reservation will cover both events. Please note that sessions do fill up and become unavailable.
Occasionally, Information Sessions will be held in alternate locations on campus so guests are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of their reserved Information Session to allow ample time to walk over to the assigned location for check in.
Before you arrive on campus, please review the University Operating Status. Occasionally due to weather conditions (e.g. heat advisories, snow, severe thunderstorms), our office may modify or cancel tours of campus. Every effort is made to ensure that information sessions and campus tours are offered as scheduled. In these cases, up-to-date information is available by contacting our office at (202) 687-3600.
Information session and campus tour reservation calendars are posted three months at a time. If you are looking for a date beyond this range, the currently posted calendars may act as a general guide for when we hold our sessions. From time to time, a session will appear "closed" but in fact it may still have occupancy, as some visitors will switch times or cancel. If a particular time or date appears "closed", please call our office at (202) 687-3600 to determine if additional seating may be obtained.
We do our best to accommodate all visitors so should you be unable to join the information session, you are always welcome to join the accompanying student-led campus tour or view the Self-Guided Tour packet.

Self-Guided Campus Tour
The Blue & Gray Tour Guide Society, in coordination with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, has designed a self-guided walking tour for prospective students, families, and visitors. The Self-Guided Tour is also an excellent opportunity for visiting groups to explore campus, particularly for those who are unable to schedule a Group Visit.
Appointments with Admissions Officers
While we do not make any personal appointments with students, there is usually an Admissions Officer "on duty" who will be able to answer specific questions you might have that were not answered in your Information Session. Please note that there is no Officer available from 9:30-11:00 am on Tuesdays as this is weekly staff meeting.
