Admissions

Visits to the University

The Office of Admissions welcomes families for information sessions, interviews, and campus tours on most weekdays throughout the year, including many holidays. Some weekend options are offered.

Prospective students and their families who visit campus find their interactions with counselors, current students, and faculty to be a deciding factor in applying to and ultimately enrolling at Rochester. Admissions can arrange overnight accommodations on campus for prospective students. Requests to visit campus or to stay overnight should be made at least two weeks in advance.

Students with questions concerning academic departments, student life, or extracurricular activities may contact Admissions at admit@admissions.rochester.edu. Applicants who cannot travel to Rochester may wish to attend an interviewing event or speak with an alumni representative in their area.

For information on visiting the School of Nursing, please contact the school's Student Affairs Office.
