Visiting

Notice

In response to the evolving situation with COVID-19, Amherst College has made the difficult decision to close all campus buildings to the public and suspend all on-campus public events until further notice. Our students, faculty, and staff are studying, teaching, and working remotely from their homes.

Until we can welcome you back to campus physically, we encourage you to explore Amherst through the College’s website, including Amherst newsAdmission and Financial Aid, and our online virtual tour

Virtual Visits & Info Sessions

The Office of Admissions is offering virtual visits that will replicate as closely as possible the experience of an in-person campus visit.

Join us on Zoom for a two-part visit:

  • 45-minute live information session presented by an Amherst admission dean, including a formal presentation, a photographic introduction to Amherst, and an opportunity to ask questions. 
  • 45-minute virtual campus tour led by one of our summer intern student guides. 

Monday - Friday, 2:00 - 3:30 pm EDT

To accommodate students in multiple time zones, we will also offer a virtual campus visit every Tuesday, 8:30 - 10:00 am EDT. The Tuesday morning virtual visit may be especially convenient for international students, but all students are welcome to attend any of the sessions!
