Campus Visit & Tour

On-campus tours and information sessions can be scheduled online. The number of daily visitors is capped, and arrival times are staggered to ensure an optimal campus visit experience.

Fall for Hamilton

Join us for one of two Saturdays this fall where you will have a chance to explore our campus and community, and experience our open curriculum and talented professors. The day will include an information session, campus tour, community panel, lunch, and an opportunity to sit in on a mock class.

Personal Interviews

An interview will not only provide us with a strong sense of your personal strengths and interests that may not be obvious in an application, it will also give you a chance to ask questions and learn more about Hamilton in a personal setting.

Virtually Hamilton Events

From exploring our community to details about the application and financial aid process, you’ll hear from Admission Officers, students, faculty, and other Hamilton community members in these online sessions throughout the summer and fall.

Home at Hamilton

Home at Hamilton is a two-day campus experience designed for high-achieving high school seniors in the U.S. who could not otherwise afford to visit Hamilton. Admission to the program is selective, and students who have not already visited campus and are first-generation to college or from families with limited financial resources will be given preference.

Tour From Your Sofa

Take a Hamilton College campus tour right from your sofa! Hosted via Zoom, your personal student tour guide will explore campus with you - walking through classroom buildings, athletics facilities, arts facilities, the dining hall, and more! And best of all, you’ll be able to ask questions and interact with them as they make their way across our campus.

Virtual Information Session

Video information sessions are held once per month, on select Wednesdays. Led by an admission dean, these 30 minute sessions provide an opportunity to learn more about the College, explore Hamilton’s Promise, and have your questions answered.

Virtual Tour on Your Own

Want to explore campus on your own? Our Virtual Tour has what you need to experience Hamilton at your pace. With over 20 stops, 360-degree views of campus, and videos to provide more details, our Virtual Tour is a great way to learn more about us. No registration required, and you can take the virtual tour on your PC, tablet, or smartphone.

Visit a Class

When classes are in session, prospective students who are visitors of the Admission Office are generally welcome to sit in on classes. We encourage you to arrive five to ten minutes before the class begins to introduce yourself to the professor and to make sure the content for that day is appropriate (not an exam day, etc.).

More Information about Campus Visits:

Should you require assistance in scheduling your campus visit, please reach out to Courtney Combs, Admission Visit Coordinator, at ccombs@hamilton.edu.

If you need financial assistance to visit campus, we offer limited travel reimbursement on a competitive, ad hoc basis to subsidize a portion of the costs associated with visiting campus for high school seniors who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to do so.
