Plan a Visit

When you visit campus for an information session and student-led 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.

And don't miss Build Your Bucknell, a different kind of fall open house, offered in-person and online from Oct. 6 to Nov. 19.

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

Visit Options: In-person and Virtual

We have two options for families wanting to visit Bucknell: in-person information sessions followed by a guided tour and virtual visits.

In-person Information Sessions and Guided Tours 

  • Oct. 5 to Nov. 10: Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays at 9:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
  • Due to an increase in positive COVID-19 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.

Pre-registration is required. To register and learn more about preparing for your in-person visit, click the link below.

Preparing for Your In-person Visit

Please review the following guidance to make your visit go smoothly. We look forward to seeing you.

  • Pre-registration: All visitors must register for the information session; we are not able to accommodate walk-in visitors at this time. Those who register for the information session will automatically be registered for the campus tour. See the schedule and register here
  • Visitors from states with high COVID-19 rates: 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.
  • Health screening: To enter Freas Hall and participate in the information session and tour, visitors are subject to a health screening that may include a temperature check. Please arrive at least 20 minutes early to ensure you make it inside with plenty of time to spare.
  • Physical distancing: Capacity at the information session is limited to 20 people with ample room between groups to allow families to spread out as they learn more about Bucknell.

Residence halls are unavailable to visitors, and we respectfully request that visitors refrain from entering buildings that are not entered during the formal Admissions tour.
