What to Expect on Your Campus Visit
As you consider a visit to Hamilton College, please be aware that the safety and security of our prospective students and their families, as well as our admission staff and campus community, is a top priority. Here is what to expect on your campus visit:
Due to the need to adhere to campus COVID-19 guidelines, and maintain the safety of our community and visitors, the daily number of families that can visit is capped. Therefore, registration is required, and walk-in registrations will be accommodated on a space-available basis.
If you or others traveling with you have exhibited COVID-19 symptoms, tested positive for COVID-19, or been in close or proximate contact with anyone confirmed or suspected of COVID-19 for the 14 days preceding your registered campus visit, you must cancel your visit and reschedule for a later date.
Upon arrival to campus, please check in at Siuda House, home of Hamilton’s Office of Admission and Financial Aid, so that we can properly welcome and advise you. In keeping with CDC and campus guidelines, masks are required indoors for all visitors - including in Siuda House and any buildings you may enter as part of your campus tour.
Waiting Area & Facilities
After check-in at Siuda House, you will wait for your tour or information session in semi- distanced family seating areas. On warmer days, we look forward to greeting families in our “Outdoor Waiting Room” (under a canopy), on our side porch, or on one of our building’s two patios. Information sessions will be conducted under our canopy or in our indoor presentation room, where there is space for families to partially distance from one another. If you have registered for an in-person interview on Saturdays, please note that your interview will be held outdoors, weather permitting, and you should dress accordingly.
Please be prepared to share your tour with other families, though we will do our best to keep tours as small as possible. Tours will enter a limited number of buildings, if permitted, and masks are required indoors in all buildings.
If you have any questions or concerns about your campus visit, please contact our office at email@example.com.
Those who would like to maintain stricter physical distancing protocols than we can currently provide during a campus visit should consider attending one or more of Hamilton’s many virtual visit options.
