Special message regarding admission visit programming:

In order to ensure the health and well-being of our campus community and our prospective students and their families, Colgate University has adapted upcoming admission visit programming in concert with the University’s response plan to COVID-19 until further notice. 

While information sessions and group tours are cancelled, our team remains committed to providing you and your family with the most comprehensive look into life at Colgate. Prospective students and their families are invited to register for self-guided or student-led (limited availability) tours of Colgate's campus. In addition, we invite you to take advantage of our virtual tour and virtual information sessions, explore our academic offerings, and most importantly, connect with your regional Admission Officer, who can answer questions you have about the Colgate experience, and connect you with other campus resources.

Campus Tours

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. Self-guided and limited student-led tours are available. Each tour slot is restricted to one family unit.

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 are updated frequently. If you are traveling from any state that is on the N.Y./N.J./C.T. restricted travel list, and have not completed the mandatory 14-day quarantine period, you must cancel your visit. 


Tours will not be available and access to campus may be limited on August 24-25 as current students return to campus. 

The office of admission will be closed on September 7 in observance of Labor Day.
