Senior Overnight Visit Program

Rensselaer’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions invites seniors in high school to experience firsthand the academic and social life at Rensselaer through an overnight visit. Visiting seniors will attend classes and stay overnight in their residence hall.

Overnight visits are available Monday—Thursday nights only (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights are not available). The overnight visit program will run September 26th—November 14th. Overnight requests can be submitted beginning September 19th and require two weeks’ notice. Although we will do our best to honor all requests, due to space limitations we cannot guarantee all overnight requests.

To request and overnight visit, please complete the Senior Overnight Visit Request Form.

Architecture Visitors

Please contact Lecia O’Dell in the School of Architecture, or schedule a visit online.

We strongly recommend a visit to the Rensselaer School of Architecture to meet with one of their faculty and visit their studios. Because Architecture does not have classes during the summer, they have a limited number of faculty available to meet with you during the months of June, July, and August. The best time to visit is during one of the regular academic semesters, September through December or mid-January through mid-May. The School of Architecture does not schedule Friday appointments.

Weekend Office Hours

Rensselaer welcomes visitors on Saturdays, excluding the months of December through February.

Please note Rensselaer students do not have weekend classes; therefore, access to academic buildings and laboratories can be limited on weekends.

Weekend student-led walking tours highlight the main academic campus and freshman residence halls.
