On-Campus Opportunities During COVID-19
The Office of Admissions has resumed formal campus visits in a limited capacity. Information for both admitted and prospective students can be found below regarding formal and self-guided on-campus visit opportunities, as well as virtual visit opportunities.
In an effort to protect the health and safety of our community and visitors, we are cautiously starting to reopen the campus. We are requiring that visitors adhere to safety protocols put in place by the University, local, state, and federal governments. We understand this reopening process may present challenges to students and families, and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding.
Admitted Student Events
Explore our campus and community through virtual platforms and limited on-campus tours. Several online platforms allow you to “visit” Lehigh and find out if it is the right fit for you, including our Admitted Student Community.
Prospective Student Events
Join us for a virtual or on-campus event to learn more about our campus and community. Our virtual information sessions give an overview of the academic and student life experience at Lehigh, and we are also offering a limited number of opportunities for prospective students to visit campus formally.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, formal visits are limited to five people per party, and registration is required for these events. Unregistered visitors will not be permitted to join the event. All visitors to campus agree to adhere to the University’s safety policies and protocols. Failure to do so will result in an immediate request to leave the campus. Please review the information shared below about the expectations and policies in place for visitors prior to registering for an event or visiting campus.
On-Campus Group Information Session
On select Saturdays, we will be offering a limited number of group information sessions for prospective students. In these sessions, an Office of Admissions staff member will share information about academics, student life, traditions and the application process. There is no tour offered as part of this event, but visitors are welcome to take a self-guided tour of campus on their own.
Self-Guided Campus Tour
Although we are not currently hosting student-guided campus tours for prospective students, visitors are welcome to conduct a self-guided campus tour on their own and utilize the virtual tour, which can be launched from your mobile device’s web browser, or the campus maps available at the kiosk in front of the Alumni Memorial Building (the side facing the fountain).
Virtual Visit Opportunities
We are currently offering virtual visit opportunities, including information sessions by admissions counselors on a variety of topics, student-led virtual tours and more.
