Tours, Info Sessions, Overnights, Class & Lunch Visits
We hope to see you on campus!
Student-guided campus tours are available to everyone. They generally last one hour. There is no reservation process, but we strongly encourage you to complete the electronic contact card in advance of your trip. We also suggest that you call ahead of time to make sure tours are available on the day you plan to visit.
Campus Tour Schedule
Monday – Friday (Year-round). The Admission Office is open most Saturdays in the fall (the Saturday after Labor Day through mid December) and some Saturdays in April. The Office is closed on Saturdays in January, February, March, June, July, and August. See the Admission Calendar for tour availability on a particular date. There will be no tours when the Board of Admission is closed. During exam periods and breaks, tours depend on student availability.
Admission staff members will share with you important information about Wellesley in scheduled information sessions in April, June, July, August, and October (see calendar), which generally last one hour. There is no reservation process, but we strongly encourage you to complete an electronic contact card in advance of your trip. Plan to arrive at the Office of Admission about 10 minutes before the session begins.
Information Session Schedule:
Monday – Friday (April, June, July, August, October) at 9 am and 1 pm. Please see the Admission Calendar.
Have Lunch with a Current Student
We invite you to have lunch in a dining hall in a residence hall with a current Wellesley student and enjoy informal conversation with her. It's a great way to learn more about Wellesley. Lunch visits are available to seniors in the fall and juniors and seniors in the spring. Students should call the Admission Office at 781.283.2270 to schedule. Two weeks' notice is preferred.
Lunch Hostess Schedule:
Monday-Friday (late September – early December) from 12:30 pm -1:30 pm
Attend a Class
Many professors open their classes to high school seniors in the fall and juniors and seniors in the spring. To attend a class, you must do so through the Admission Office, where you can view the selection of available classes. (The class schedule on the Registrar's page does not take into account exams, field trips, and other anomalies, as well as professors who are unable to accommodate visitors.) Please arrive at the Admission Office 30 minutes before the start of your class period. This will allow time for you to choose your class, walk to the building, and meet the professor before the start of class. See Admission Calendar for class times. An appointment is not necessary, but we strongly encourage you to complete the electronic contact card in advance of your trip.
Class Visit Schedule:
At most times throughout the academic year. Refer to the Admission Calendar for exact days and times.
Stay Overnight with a Current Student
To thoroughly experience Wellesley’s residential life, high school seniors are welcome to make a reservation to spend the night at a Wellesley residence hall, hosted by a Wellesley student. Please call the Admission Office at 781.283.2270 two weeks in advance to schedule an overnight visit.
Overnight Hostess Schedule:
Monday-Thursday, (late September – mid November)
Special Visit Groups
For counselors who would like to bring a group of students from their school or program, we offer special tours and information sessions. Please call the Admission Office at 781.283.2270 and we’ll make arrangements to accommodate you.
