Visit Union

See for yourself

You can flip through our Instagram photos and browse our website, but you’ll never truly experience Union College—until you see it for yourself.

Whether you can spend an hour, an afternoon or a full day, Union has a visit option for you. The Office of Admissions is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We are also open on selected Saturdays.

Admitted Student Programs

We're excited to welcome our new admitted students to take a closer look at life at Union and learn why you should make Union yours.

We hope you and your family will join us for our special events created just for you to learn more about life in and out of the classroom.

Visit Experience: Tour and Information Session

Bring your questions. Stroll around campus with a student guide. You’ll explore classrooms, Minerva Houses, arts facilities, the campus center, research labs and more. The visit experience begins with a group information session for prospective students and their families. Next, student volunteers give tours of the campus that typically last 75 minutes.


Let's talk. Prepare for an enjoyable conversation about your academic career, interests and personal goals. On-campus interviews are strongly recommended because they allow us to get to know you better, adding another dimension to your admissions application. We interview high school students beginning May 1 of the junior year through Jan. 31 of the senior year.

Open houses

Get ready for a busy day. You’ll meet students, professors and coaches. Hear panel discussions about academics and student life. Lunch, too! Best of all: at the fall open house, you can choose from hundreds of classes to attend.

Day programs

This is as real as it gets. Shadow a student on a typical Union day. Sit in on classes, have lunch with future friends, check out the residence halls and live the life of a Union student.

School group visits

We welcome school groups and community-based organizations to campus for a tour and/or information session. Groups of 10 or more should register in advance. We can only accommodate school groups on weekdays.

Self-Guided Tours

If you visit campus when the office is closed, look for the "Self-Guided Walking Tour" and other brochures by the front door. Please let us know you stopped at Union by filling out our visitor card.
