OARS staff are available throughout the year to meet with current or prospective students and their families. 

If you are visiting during a campus-wide open house, please call or email ahead of time to schedule a time to meet. You can also look for us in your open house schedule for events and drop-in tables.

If you are visiting for a professional, collaborative meeting, we can provide you with parking information. Otherwise, please see Finding Us for more information about accessing the Hampshire College campus.
