Generally speaking, it’s a transformative experience.
Take a tour, go to a class, eat (free!) lunch with a student, spend the night in a residence hall. And, of course, we’d love to see you at Spring Open Campus!
Visit our beautiful 500-acre campus, situated 12 miles west of Boston. Below are some of the visiting options we offer admitted students in April.
Spring Open Campus

April Alumnae Gatherings for Admitted Students
See if there is an alumnae gathering for admitted students in your area in the coming weeks. If so, we invite you and your parents to join us. It's always fun to meet alumnae, in part because they're still as excited about Wellesley as the day they graduated!
Wellesley College is located at 106 Central Street, Wellesley, Massachusetts 02481. The campus is situated between Washington Street (Route 16) and Central Street (Route 135). Campus Map | Directions | Transportation | Hotels

Admission staff members will share with you important information about Wellesley in scheduled information sessions, which generally last one hour and are held throughout April.
