Visit and Tour Geneseo
All of Geneseo's academic departments have "open office hours" available for prospective students to visit, ask questions, and learn more about their department of choice. If you'd like to schedule your campus tour for a day when your preferred department has office hours, please visit the Academic Department Visits page for a complete list of each department's open hours.
Campus tours last about 90 minutes, and are accompanied by an information session with an admissions counselor. Bring as many family members as you'd like.
When You're Here
When you arrive, please come directly to the Admissions Office on the second floor of Doty Hall. The Admissions Office is open from 8 AM to 4:15 PM Monday through Friday. Students and parents are welcome to make individual appointments with admissions counselors during office hours, but interviews are not a requirement of the admission process at Geneseo.
The tour is a walking tour, so dress comfortably and wear walking shoes. If you arrive 10-15 minutes early, you can enjoy some light refreshments before the tour.
If you find yourself visiting when the Admissions Office is closed, information packets and self-guided tours will still be available. To take our self-guided tour, pick up a map in Milne Library or University Police Office in Schrader Hall (campus map).
Tours for Transfer Students and International Students
Information specific to our transfer student visitation schedule can be found at Information for Transfer Students. Information for international students can be found on our International Student & Scholar Services website.
Other Visit Options
In addition to our regular tours and open house events, we offer other ways to visit and experience the campus.
