Campus Visit Experience

You and your immediate family are invited to explore Colgate's beautiful campus in an experience consistent with the University's current policies for social distancing, and to ensure the health and safety of our visitors and community. Pre-registration is required. Due to capacity limits currently in place, please know that we may need to limit the number of guests in the presentation room during the brief remarks at the beginning and end of your visit. All guests in your party will be accommodated on the walking campus tour.

Please note that access to buildings is restricted at this time, and guests will be expected to remain outside for the duration of their tour. In addition, New York State has issued new quarantine guidelines for many out-of-state visitors. These guidelines for out-of-state travelers to New York are updated frequently. If you are traveling from out-of-state, and have not completed the mandatory 14-day quarantine period or met these guidelines, you must cancel your visit.
