As you consider a visit to Hamilton College, please know that providing a safe and positive campus visit experience is our top priority. 

Registration Required

To provide an optimal campus visit experience, the daily number of families that can visit is capped and arrival times are staggered. Therefore, registration is required for information sessions and campus tours. Walk-in visitors may be accommodated on a space-available basis, and when limitations arise, you are welcome to register and take a self-guided tour. 

Masks are not currently required on campus for vaccinated and boosted individuals. Those who are not fully vaccinated (with at least one booster) against COVID-19 are required to wear masks while indoors. Hamilton remains a mask-friendly campus, and many individuals may choose to wear masks in spaces where they are not required or may ask you to wear a mask when in close proximity. Please carry a mask with you and be respectful of such requests.

Visit Check-In

Upon arrival to campus registered visitors must check in at Siuda House, home of Hamilton’s Office of Admission and Financial Aid, so that we can properly welcome and advise you. Visitors for our Junior Preview Day events will receive information about their check-in location via email, and should follow signs posted on campus.

Waiting Area & Facilities

After check-in at Siuda House, you will wait for your tour or information session in semi- distanced family seating areas. On warmer days, we look forward to greeting families in our “Outdoor Waiting Room” (under a canopy), on our side porch, or on one of our building’s two patios. Information sessions will be conducted under our canopy or in our indoor presentation room. Please note that if you have registered for an in-person interview, it will be conducted in an office, with space to distance. Masks are optional for vaccinated individuals.

Visit Limitations

Please be prepared to share your tour with other families, though we will do our best to keep tours as small as possible. Tours may enter a limited number of buildings.

If you have any questions or concerns about your campus visit, please contact our office at

Those who would like to maintain stricter physical distancing protocols than we can currently provide during a campus visit should consider attending one or more of Hamilton’s many virtual visit options.
