Information for Visitors

***COLD TEMPERATURE NEWSFLASH! We have been experiencing sub-zero temperatures in Hanover recently and, as a result, some of our scheduled guided tours may need to be converted to virtual tours. Please be advised that your tour will still take place but that we might only be able to offer you an indoor version of the regular campus tour. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.***

Special Visit Days:

If you would like to visit campus and attend a planned program for prospective students (all the family welcome), please check out our Special Visit Days page.

Regular Campus Tours & Info Sessions:

Our regular information sessions will resume daily on February 16, 2015.

Term-Time Visitor Programs

  • Admissions Information Sessions (45 minutes; all welcome): Learn more about a Dartmouth education, our application process, and financial aid offered by the College. We will highlight some of the many things that make Dartmouth unique.
  • Campus Tours (1 hour; all welcome): A current student will lead you around campus and share Dartmouth stories.
  • Student Forums: These forums are a great opportunity to hear directly from current Dartmouth students about their experiences and to have your questions answered. These forums are offered on select Saturdays, and are open to prospective students only.
  • Winter Coffee Fridays (3:30pm on Fridays from January 23 to March 6, 2015): Visiting Hanover on a Friday afternoon? Interested in having coffee with a current Dartmouth student? Check in with the Admissions office upon arrival to register.

Regular Office Hours

  • Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.
  • During office hours, our phone lines are open.

Reception Area

Visitors can wait here for tours, get information, or just grab a cup of coffee.

  • Monday - Friday: 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. - check calendar for availability.


Our busiest times are Monday and Friday mornings. You can have a less stressful visit simply by planning an afternoon time.

Are you available off-peak? Summer is a popular time to see Dartmouth in action, because students are in residence taking classes. During July and August, as well as all high school vacation periods, tours and info sessions can be very crowded.

Group Visits of 10 or More

We recommend that you contact our office at least one month in advance. We’ll do our best to accommodate large groups but in the event that we are unable to accommodate your visit, we will be happy to provide you with campus maps.

We cannot accommodate large groups when classes are not in session or during the month of April.

Remember that Monday and Friday mornings are the busiest. You can often arrange a less stressful visit just by planning to be here in the afternoon.

Email us to arrange a large group tour.
