Visits & Campus Tours
Come for a campus visit and see if Lehigh’s beautiful campus and thriving community is the place for you to call home—for the next four years and beyond.
Your visit is an important element of your college search. It is an opportunity for you and your family to get the "feel" of the institution—to experience the intangibles. We invite you and your family to experience firsthand our stunning campus and vibrant community.
If you require special accommodations to tour our campus, please contact the Office of Admissions at (610) 758-3100 prior to your arrival on campus. We would be more than happy to assist you.
Due to construction, please be aware of detours on and around campus. Please allow extra time in your travel plans to account for possible delays.
Campus Visit Opportunities
Our on-campus visit opportunities go beyond the facts and figures available on our website and brochures to describe the academic and student experience, highlighting aspects that are uniquely Lehigh. The dates for visiting campus are currently available by clicking "Plan Your Visit" below.
Information Sessions, Campus Tours & Large Group Visits
Group Information Sessions, Campus Tours and Large Group Visits, as well as college and program-specific Information Sessions and Tours, are offered on select weekdays and a limited number of Saturdays throughout the year.
Special Visit Opportunities
Get an in-depth look at life as a Lehigh student as you spend a day on campus through an open house or one of our other special visit opportunities. Events include open houses, interviews and activities such as meeting with current students and faculty, attending class and presentations by associate deans of each college.
Admitted Student Events
Each April we offer several events specifically designed for admitted students. Admitted students should follow the instructions in their offer letter to access their portal account, which contains information on how to register for these programs, including Lehigh Life Days and Candidates’ Day.
Office of Admissions Inclement Weather and Emergency Closing Policy
Lehigh University’s Office of Admissions strives to honor scheduled campus visits while keeping safety in mind. In the event that the University closes due to inclement weather or an emergency, all scheduled campus visits will also be canceled. Information regarding any changes to the University’s opening will be posted on the top of each page of Lehigh’s website. Students and families should check this page prior to traveling to Lehigh University if hazardous weather conditions are forecast.
Visiting students and their families are encouraged to exercise caution when determining whether to travel in inclement weather. Please use good judgment and put safety first when traveling and navigating campus. If a student or the University cancels an interview, information session, campus tour or other appointment due to inclement weather, it will not reflect negatively on the student’s application. We request that the student notifies the Office of Admissions of the reason for cancellation in a timely manner. The Office of Admissions cannot guarantee a rescheduled interview or other event if one is cancelled due to inclement weather or an emergency.
The three potential situations are outlined below:
- University Closed (Full Day): Information sessions, tours, interviews and other events are canceled.
- Delayed Opening: Information sessions, tours, and interviews scheduled during the delayed opening will be canceled. Once the University reopens, information sessions and tours will continue at their scheduled times. If a student is already on campus for a cancelled interview, we will attempt to reschedule the interview for a time later that day.
- Early Close: Information sessions, tours and interviews scheduled for a time after the University closes will be canceled. If a student is already on campus when the University closure announcement is made and their scheduled interview is canceled, we will work with the student to reschedule an in-person or online interview with the student for a later date but cannot guarantee that we will be able to find a mutually convenient time.
