    The best way to get to know Bucknell is to see it for yourself. Options for visiting include tours, open houses and a virtual tour.

In-person Visit Options

In-person Admissions visits have resumed with new protocols designed to keep everyone safe and healthy. Visits include an information session and/or a guided campus tour, which includes opportunities to enter buildings on campus.

We care about the health and safety of our visitors and staff and would like to remind you of the following visit guidelines:

  • Registration: Advance registration is required. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate unregistered guests during information sessions and tours. (For these visitors, we suggest our self-guided audio tour or driving tour.)
  • Location and parking:  Once on campus, please park in a visitor-designated parking lot and make your way to the Office of Admissions at Freas Hall (One Dent Drive).
  • Face covering policy: Please bring a face covering for your visit. Face coverings are required in all indoor campus spaces, regardless of social distancing or vaccination status. Face coverings are not required outdoors.
  • Capacity: To promote the health and safety of student ambassadors, staff and guests, each tour will be small and socially distanced.
