Plan a Visit

When you visit campus for an information session and guided tour, chat with our student ambassadors online, or experience a virtual tour of campus, you'll have a front-row seat as you explore this place we call home.

This combination of in-person and virtual visit offerings means you can learn more about Bucknell in the way that fits you and your family best.

Find the visit experience that's right for you below. We hope to see you soon — either on campus or online.

In-person Visit Options

In-person Admissions visits are available, with protocols designed to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Visits include your choice of one of the following:

  • A combined visit, with a 30-minute information session followed by a 75-minute campus tour
  • A standalone 75-minute campus tour
  • A 45-minute facility tour of engineering and athletics spaces
  • A class visit (for potential members of our next incoming class)

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 likely 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. Bucknell's face covering requirements follow CDC guidelines, based on current rates of transmission of COVID-19 in Union County. Face coverings are required in all public and academic indoor campus spaces when transmission rates are high, but not when transmission rates are low or medium. View Bucknell's current status.
  • Capacity: To promote the health and safety of student ambassadors, staff and guests, each tour will strive to be small and socially distanced.
