On Campus Information Sessions & Tours

    We welcome you to attend a campus visit of Harvard College. A campus visit consists of a one hour information session with an admissions officer and 1-2 current undergraduate students, followed by a one hour campus tour led by a current undergraduate student. 

    Please note that the visit schedule is typically posted one month prior to each semester. There will be no on-campus information sessions and tours on Harvard College holidays, during other college closures and on most school breaks. We will conduct visits during the summer months in June and July. During scheduled off-times, we encourage you to attend a virtual information session.

    Registration Instructions

    • Registration for a campus visit is required.
    • To sign up, please select an available date from the calendar below. Multiple events may pop up when you select an available date. Click on the event labeled "On-Campus Visit" at the time that works for you, and then complete the registration form on a new page.
    • Once your registration is complete, we will be in touch via email with helpful information to plan your visit and visit reminders.
    • If you arrive on campus without registering, a member of our visitor team will help you to determine your best options including providing information about a self-guided tour and helping you to register for an open tour date and time.

    If the on-campus sessions are full, here are a few options for you: 

    COVID-19 Precautions

    A negative COVID test is not required to participate in campus information sessions and tours, however all visitors and their guests must agree neither they nor their family members will attend an event if they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days, been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days, or experienced symptoms of COVID-19 within 48 hours prior to the event. An email reminder will go out to all registered attendees 48 hours before the event.

    Group Visits/Tours

    Visiting parties are limited to groups of 5. For groups of 6 or more, please contact the Harvard University Visitor Center to arrange a visit.

    If you are interested in bringing a group of students from a high school, community based organization (CBO), or other college access group serving students traditionally underrepresented in higher education, we would like to work with you to accommodate this request. You can request a visit here
