    or take a Campus Walking Tour (reservations not required).

  • Meet with a faculty or staff member in an academic department of interest. (Please make an appointment directly with the department in advance of your visit.)

You should know

When planning your trip, remember your visit to campus is for your informational purposes only. Stanford does not track visitors or conduct on-campus interviews as part of the undergraduate admission process. Prospective students are encouraged to visit on a weekday because most departments, including the Undergraduate Admission Office, are closed on weekends.

See our Visitor Calendar and Academic Calendar for additional information.
