Information Sessions & Tours
We know that your time is valuable, which is why we offer plenty of options to fit your schedule. We recommend that you plan your visit in advance by using the calendars below to maximize your experience. After visiting our campus, we encourage you to spend time exploring Bethlehem's South Side and historic district.
Group Information Sessions, led by an admissions staff member, primarily discuss academics, admissions, and financial aid, and last 45-60 minutes. A 75-minute student-guided Campus Tour highlights many topics that are important to first-year students, including housing, dining, academics and extracurricular activities. A visit to Lehigh is most effective if the guests attend an information session followed by a campus tour.
Group Information Sessions and Campus Tours are offered on most weekdays; please use the Admissions Events Calendar for specific dates. Registration for individuals/families is NOT taken; however, groups of fifteen or more must register at least three weeks in advance. When arriving, simply check in at the Office of Admissions within the Alumni Memorial Building at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the Group Information Session. Please wear comfortable shoes.
On the following Saturdays, the Office of Admissions will provide a Group Information Session with a Campus Tour starting at the times indicated. For more details, please view the calendar .
