Groups of 10 to 50 individuals from a high school or community-based organization can request an hour-long walking tour of our campus specifically for their group. These tours are geared towards high school-aged students and provide information on the academic, residential, and student life experience at Vassar. Priority is given to groups of 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students. Groups wishing to visit Vassar should complete the group tour request form at least three weeks prior to the date requested.
Individual attendees and groups of fewer than 10 are encouraged to sign up for a regularly scheduled information session and tour.
Group Tour Availability
Group tours can be scheduled Monday through Friday at either 11:30am or 3:00pm, based on availability. We are only able to accommodate groups of fewer than 50 individuals and we recommend one chaperone to every 10 students. Group tour availability is limited during the summer due to our reduced tour guide staff.
Groups are required to arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled tour time. If a group is more than 15 minutes late to their scheduled tour, we cannot guarantee the tour.
Dining on Campus
The Office of Admission is not able to provide or coordinate meals. However, group coordinators may reach out to Campus Dining at (845) 437-5830 to discuss on-campus dining options.
We do not provide Q&A sessions unless requested at the time of the initial group tour request. If requested, a Q&A session is not guaranteed due to staffing constraints. If granted, the Q&A session will be conducted by an admission officer and will last approximately 30 minutes.
