Admitted Student Virtual Events & On-Campus Tours

Find out if Lehigh is the right fit for you by exploring our campus and community, virtually and in-person. Between virtual admitted student events, the Lehigh Admitted Student Community, on-demand virtual sessions, and on-campus programming (limited availability), there are a variety of ways to engage and learn more.

On-Campus Visits

The Office of Admissions has resumed campus visits for admitted students in a limited capacity. In an effort to protect the health and safety of our community and visitors, we are cautiously starting to reopen the campus. We are requiring that visitors adhere to safety protocols put in place by the University, local, state, and federal governments. We understand this reopening process may present challenges to students and families, and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding.

Many topics and facilities that are particularly important to first-year students and their parents are included in the student-guided campus tour. Residence life, dining, extra-curricular activities, course workload, relationships with professors, and student support services are all discussed. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, tours will not enter any buildings or residence halls and will be limited in size (~15 total people). Each student-guided campus tour will be followed by a short Q&A session with a staff member from the Office of Admissions. After a brief welcome and a hearty congratulations, we will turn the session over to the audience for any general questions they might have. Registration is required for these events and unregistered visitors will not be permitted to join the event. By registering, all visitors agree to adhere to the University’s safety policies and protocols. Failure to do so will result in an immediate request to leave the campus. Please review the information shared below about the expectations and policies in place for visitors prior to registering.

Although we are only hosting a limited amount of student-guided campus tours, admitted students are welcome to conduct a self-guided campus tour on their own and utilize the virtual tour, which can be launched from your mobile device’s web browser, or the campus maps available at the kiosk in front (the side facing the fountain) of the Alumni Memorial Building. All campus visitors are still expected to adhere to the University’s safety policies and protocols. Failure to do so will result in an immediate request to leave the campus. Please review the information shared below about the expectations and policies in place for visitors prior to visiting campus.

All visitors to campus should adhere to the following safety protocols:

  • The day of your visit, each member of your party is required to complete a self-screening through Lehigh’s COVID-19 Self-Assessment tool before coming to campus and will need to provide proof, by showing your QR code result at the time of check-in, that they have passed the screening/are cleared to visit campus. Any member of your party should stay home if they do not pass the self-assessment or if:
    • they have tested positive for COVID-19
    • are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms
    • if they have come in close contact with a person who has symptoms of or has tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days
       
  • Face coverings are required to be worn in any public area, and in any circumstance where interacting with others on campus. At Lehigh, we consider public areas to include all of our buildings, as well as outdoor spaces such as campus walkways. This means that all visitors should be prepared to wear a cloth face covering for the entire duration of their visit to campus.
     
  • Visitors are not allowed to enter any buildings on campus, however restroom facilities will be accessible in the Alumni Memorial Building (i.e. Admission Office building) only for registered guests.
     
  • Visitors are responsible to follow established guidance by CDC/PA Dept. of Health if they or anyone in their party is suspected of or confirmed with COVID-19.
     
  • Visitors are required to notify Lehigh immediately upon learning that they or anyone in their party may be suspected of or confirmed with COVID-19 if:
    • The suspected or confirmed case was on campus the day they became ill
    • The suspected or confirmed case was on campus on any subsequent days after they became ill or after they had a positive test
    • The suspected or confirmed case was on campus in the 48 hours before the individual became symptomatic, or if no symptoms, the 48 hours prior to the COVID-19 test being done

Failure to follow these safety requirements will result in immediate request to leave campus.
