A campus visit is the best way to get to know New College.

While you are here, you can stop by our student-run Four Winds Café, tour our world-class marine research center, stroll through our historic buildings and meet fellow students and professors.

Campus visits are generally offered Monday -- Friday except for some holidays and special event days. Most tours are led by students. All freshman admissions visitors should go to our Admissions Welcome Center on the first floor of College Hall (pink mansion located on the bayfront).

While visiting, you can also speak personally to your Admissions and Financial Aid counselors.
