Visit Hampshire

Start Your Journey

A campus visit is the single most important way to get to know what Hampshire has to offer. Experience first-hand what it's like to live, learn, and work at a college that truly is unlike any other.

Planning your visit

There are many ways to personalize your campus experience, either through the admissions office or on your own. 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.

Our office will be closed on the following dates:
Monday, May 30, 2016
Monday, July 4, 2016

Our office will not be offering information sessions or tours on the following dates:
Monday, May 9 through Tuesday, May 31
Monday, August 29 through Friday, September 2

Interviews

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.

Class Visits

One of the best ways to observe Hampshire's pedagogy in action is to observe a class. We do not have classes during the summer. Please let the admissions office know 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 already been accepted to Hampshire College.

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.

"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."
