Eight free pieces of wisdom about visiting.
1. It’s such a good idea.
2. It takes time.
We’ve got a 500-acre campus, a lake, a science center with its own exoskeleton (and café), an art museum (and café), a solar array next to some of the region’s finest playing fields, a Tudor-style replica of Shakespeare’s birth house.
3. It can be greatly enhanced by the tools in the navigation bar to your left.
Yet the navigation bar cannot fulfill all of your needs. What if, for example, you wanted an immodest overview of the beauty of our campus? Or the opportunity to meet a Wellesley representative in your area? Or a Google map of campus, including latitude and longitude coordinates and adorable satellite imagery?
4. There's a lovely town right across the street.
It's actually just one part of Wellesley proper. But the point is you're steps away from independent shops, excellent pizza, delicious frozen yogurt, and so on.
5. There's a world-class cosmopolis 12 miles away.
Boston and Cambridge, we mean. They make a visit—not to mention the experience of being a student here—that much more expansive. Special note: "12 miles" means "40 minutes."
6. We have office hours.
The Admission Office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm (plus some Saturdays in the fall and spring), all year long—though if you’re eager to meet students, you’ll find more of them when classes are in session. For more information, call the Admission Office at 781.283.2270. You'll find the Admission Calendar helpful if you're planning a visit to campus. See also Tours, Info Sessions, Overnights, Class & Lunch Visits.
7. If you’re using GPS, use this address: 727 Washington St., Wellesley, MA 02482.
We have two “motor entrances” (!); this one is closest to Weaver House (the Admission Office) and the Dower Parking Lot.
8. If you’re using a fold-out map, we salute you.
And we’ll be here either way. And we’ll look forward to seeing you.
