Visits & Campus Tours

Visit us virtually or in-person and see if Lehigh’s beautiful campus and thriving community is the place for you to call home—for the next four years and beyond.

We offer many opportunities to learn more about life at Lehigh from students, admissions counselors and faculty. Wherever you are in the process—whether you’re just starting your search or ready to apply—here are a few of our recommendations:

  • Attend an Information Session and Campus Tour (On-campus or Virtually): First you’ll want to hear from admissions counselors and current students to learn about academics, unique opportunities and student life at Lehigh.
     
  • Learn more at a College-Specific Session or Specialized Session: Next, look into the distinctive opportunities and curriculums within each of our colleges, and delve deeper into topics of interest. Check out our on-demand library of sessions if you can't make it live.
     
  • Schedule an Interview or attend a Special Event: Finally, Lehigh interviews for rising seniors, and special events like Open House are a great way to connect and learn more. 

On-Campus Visit Opportunities

null

Visit our quintessential college campus and learn more about life at Lehigh directly from our admissions counselors and student tour guides.

As you are registering, please carefully review the On-Campus Admissions Events Calendar and the specific description for each event for important details. Most events consist of a group information session and a student-guided campus tour in order to provide well-rounded information from both admissions counselors and current students. However, you are welcome to attend just one of the two components—simply register for an event, inform us of your individual circumstances via email, and attend as you can. There are also times in the academic year where we are unable to offer student-guided campus tours and it will be clear in the description of those events that tours are not offered and that visitors are welcome to take a self-guided tour of campus on their own.

In the Group Information Session, an Office of Admissions staff member will share stories about unique and exclusive academic and research experiences, our vibrant community, traditions, and life in PA’s third largest metro area. The supportive Lehigh family and strong career placement are also discussed. The session concludes with admissions and financial aid basics.

Student guides share their perspective on residential life, dining on campus and in Bethlehem, extra-curricular activities, course workload, relationships with professors, and student support services while highlighting important facilities across campus. Due to COVID restrictions, tours will not enter any residence halls.

Interviews are available to rising high school seniors who wish to ask specific questions about Lehigh or provide additional context for their application. On-campus interviews may take place with an admissions counselor or a current student who is part of our Admissions Fellows program. Depending on where you are in your application process, you can also request a virtual interview with an alumnus (details available in the Virtual Interview section). Lehigh interviews are evaluative, but not required as part of the application process. An interview can be a useful tool for Lehigh prospective applicants to share more of their story and learn more about the institution. Interviews last approximately 30 minutes. Students can only interview with Lehigh once.

General Interviews

General interviews are available on campus to rising seniors who are considering applying, or have already submitted an application, to Lehigh. They are typically conducted by a current student who is a member of our Admissions Fellows program, or one of our admissions counselors. This is the most widely available interview option. Students can only interview with Lehigh once.

Alumni Interviews

Alumni interviews are available to current seniors who have already submitted their application and have not yet completed an interview with Lehigh in any capacity. Learn more >

Programming for groups of 15 or more is offered on select weekdays and is available to Community-Based Organizations and schools with students enrolled in 9th-12th grade. Groups should make arrangements by completing the online registration form at least three weeks prior to their desired date. Completion of this form is not a guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your group for a group visit.

Our aim is to provide the best event experience to any student or group. On days when we anticipate a high volume of events or when our students are on break, we are unable to confirm any large group visits as we do not want to provide an experience that is less than our best. Please check the Admissions Events Calendar for the dates our office is open.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, formal visits are limited to five people per party, and registration is required for these events. All visitors to campus 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 for an event or visiting campus.

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

  • The day of your visit, the student is required to complete a screening through Lehigh’s COVID-19 Self-Assessment tool before coming to campus. This screening should be answered taking into consideration the health of the entire party. You will need to provide proof by showing a screenshot of your QR code result, indicating that you have passed the screening and 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 our has tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days
       
  • All individuals on Lehigh’s campuses are required to wear masks in all indoor public and common spaces and at all outdoor events and gatherings where social distancing between individuals or family groups is not possible, regardless of vaccination status. As a result, all members of your party should expect to wear a mask for the duration of their formal visit. After your formal event has concluded, you can remove your masks outdoors.

    After your formal event has concluded, you can remove your masks outdoors as long as your group is able to social distance. Please keep your masks accessible in the event that you interact with community members outside of your party.  
     
  • Visitors are welcome to enter most academic buildings on weekdays during the day. However, we ask that you refrain from dining on campus. The only dining option available to campus visitors currently is Clutch & Go, a grab and go cafe located on the second floor of the University Center.
     
  • 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.

Please find other Lehigh updates regarding COVID-19 >

Lehigh University’s Office of Admissions strives to honor scheduled campus visits while keeping safety in mind. In the event that the University closes due to inclement weather or an emergency, all scheduled campus visits will also be canceled. Information regarding any changes to the University’s opening will be posted on the top of each page of Lehigh’s website. Students and families should check this page prior to traveling to Lehigh University if hazardous weather conditions are forecast.

Visiting students and their families are encouraged to exercise caution when determining whether to travel in inclement weather. Please use good judgment and put safety first when traveling and navigating campus. If a student or the University cancels an interview, information session, campus tour or other appointment due to inclement weather, it will not reflect negatively on the student’s application. We request that the student notifies the Office of Admissions of the reason for cancellation in a timely manner. The Office of Admissions cannot guarantee a rescheduled interview or other event if one is cancelled due to inclement weather or an emergency.

The three potential situations are outlined below: 

  • University Closed (Full Day): Information sessions, tours, interviews and other events are canceled.
     
  • Delayed Opening: Information sessions, tours, and interviews scheduled during the delayed opening will be canceled.  Once the University reopens, information sessions and tours will continue at their scheduled times. If a student is already on campus for a cancelled interview, we will attempt to reschedule the interview for a time later that day.
     
  • Early Close: Information sessions, tours and interviews scheduled for a time after the University closes will be canceled. If a student is already on campus when the University closure announcement is made and their scheduled interview is canceled, we will work with the student to reschedule an in-person or online interview with the student for a later date but cannot guarantee that we will be able to find a mutually convenient time.
