In-Person Campus Visit
We are excited to welcome registered visitors back to campus! To be sure that your time on campus is safe and enjoyable, please carefully review the information on this page prior to your Vassar visit.
Campus Access and Pre-registration
Pre-registration is required to attend the Rooted: Community at Vassar event; walk-ins will not be accommodated. Self-guided tours are permitted and campus maps are available at the directional sign in front of the Kautz Admission House.
Please note, Admission Office staff will only be available to speak with registered visitors. All campus buildings, including the Kautz Admission House, remain closed to the general public. The guided tour includes entry into some campus buildings, but visitors will not be permitted to enter buildings separate from the tour. Please refrain from bringing pets along for the event; service animals are welcome.

Arrival and Check-In
Parking is available in the South Parking Lot and North Parking Lot. A small number of parking spaces can also be found on the Main Campus Drive and along the back of Main Circle in front of Kautz House.
