Our campus is open and easy to navigate. Walk around, see our spectacular views, attend an event, visit a museum. You can explore the campus on your own (see our campus map) or take an Admission tour, or even sit in on a class.
There are a number of ways you can experience Amherst in person. Reservations are not necessary for individual students and their families, or for groups of 10 or fewer. Groups of more than 10 should call the Office of Admission at (413) 542-2328 two weeks in advance to schedule a visit.
Attend an Information Session
We regularly offer general information sessions, which are held at the Admission Office. (When you are here, don’t forget to ask us about available Financial Aid information sessions.)
Literary Amherst Tour
From Johnson Chapel to the Robert Frost’s statue to Emily Dickinson’s home, take a walking tour of our scenic campus to discover Amherst’s rich literary tradition.
