Campus Visits

    Schedule A Visit


    On-Campus Visits (Currently offered through Dec. 11)

    We're offering on-campus information sessions to a limited number of prospective students and their guests (limited to 2 guests). After the session, you're invited to take a student ambassador-guided tour. A limited number of standalone guided tours are also available. We also offer a self-guided tour and a new driving tour. Pre-registration is required; we're unable to accommodate walk-ins at this time. In accordance with orders made by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, visitors who have traveled to or from states listed here will not be allowed to visit unless they quarantine for the recommended two weeks before visiting campus.

    Build Your Own Bucknell: A different kind of fall open house, offered in-person and online from Oct. 6 to Nov. 19. Learn more here!

    Information sessions followed by ambassador-guided tours are offered at these times:
    • Oct. 5 to Nov. 10: Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays at 9:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
      • Guided campus tours begin directly after the information session. Signing up for an information session automatically registers you for a campus tour.
    • Due to an increase in positive cases on campus, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel campus visits from Monday, October 26 through Friday, October 30. This will allow us to mitigate the spread on campus as well as protect your and your family's health. Please check our website for virtual programming this week.
