Campus Visits Are Back!

We are excited to share with you the good news that visitors are once again welcome to explore our beautiful campus in person. For now, only the exterior grounds of the campus are open to visitors; all college buildings remain closed to the public. Masks are required outdoors while on Amherst's campus grounds whenever individuals are unable to maintain a six-feet distance from others.

And starting June 22, 2021 we are resuming in-person campus tours and information sessions! Advance registration is required for those on-campus events and health/safety protocols will be in place. We're also continuing our virtual visits, as well, so be sure to check out all our in-person and virtual visiting options. We can't wait to meet you!
