The best way to decide if Rensselaer is the right fit for you is to visit our campus. The Office of Admission offers information sessions, tours, open houses, and special seasonal visits. If you cannot make it for a formal tour, or just want to check out campus at your own pace, check out our virtual campus tour or download our self-guided tour.
Hear from an admissions counselor for an hour-long information session, followed by a student-led walking tour of the campus. This is a great time to learn more about Rensselaer and our application process, and to ask questions!
Please be sure to sign up online and check your confirmation email for specific information about parking and location for the session.
Information sessions and tours on Saturday mornings are held in the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS). Specific parking information will be included in your visit confirmation email.
Please Note — Rensselaer students do not have weekend classes; therefore, access to academic buildings and laboratories can be limited on weekends.
The Admissions office is closed on Saturdays from December through February (with the exception of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and President’s Day weekends). The office is also closed the weekends of Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving.
If you are interested in bringing a group of 10 or more students to campus, please complete the Group Visit Request Form. We do our best to accommodate group visit requests; however we cannot guarantee staff and student availability. PLEASE NOTE: We currently have very limited ability to host additional groups in the months of March and April.
Please review our Group Visit Guidelines prior to your visit.
