Directions and Accommodations

Other ways to explore Hampshire during your visit:

Interviews are a one-on-one conversation with an admissions counselor or a fourth-year Hampshire student. Interviews are informative as well as evaluative, and can be very helpful to prospective students and to the admissions committee. For these reasons, we strongly encourage prospective students to schedule interviews. Interviews are available weekdays by appointment and on selected Saturdays from September through January; you can select an interview date here.

Class Visits
One of the best ways to observe Hampshire's pedagogy in action is to observe a class. View a list of our fall 2015 classes here. We do not have classes during the summer. Please inform the admissions office if you plan on visiting a class.

Spring Overnight Visits
Spring overnight visits are available this spring semester for prospective first year students who have applied for admission.

Special Events
Be a Hampshire student for a day. Find out about upcoming Preview Days and other special events.

Group Visits
Hampshire welcomes groups of students from high schools or other programs. Groups of six or more require reservations; we kindly request that group visit requests be made at least two weeks in advance.

Hours of Operation
The admissions office is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Eastern time), and for limited hours on select Saturdays.

"There are two reasons why Hampshire graduates achieve so much. One is the kind of person the college attracts. The other is what the college does for them by equipping them to become their own wide-ranging explorers and connection-seekers."
