Planning Your Visit to Campus

There’s nothing like seeing and experiencing campus in person. Unfortunately, we are closed to the public as we prioritize people’s health and safety during the Covid-19 outbreak, but we’re eager to help you explore Williams from home. Below you’ll find a myriad of ways to learn more about life at Williams and connect with the people—students, faculty, and staff—who make it the special community that it is. 

Virtual Tour

Our tour guides will show you some of the campus spaces and spots that make Williams so special, all in under 10 minutes.

Virtual Info Sessions

Learn about our unique academics and close-knit community. Forty-minute Zoom sessions with an admission officer and a current student include Q&A and are offered on weekdays (except Wednesdays) at 3:00 p.m., and Tuesdays at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Morning sessions include extra information for international students. 

Eph Chats

Learn more about student life as our tour guides answer your questions directly! Q&A-style, thirty-minute Zoom sessions are offered every Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

Williams in Video

We've hosted several virtual open houses and other events over the past few months and will post many of the recordings soon.

Join Williams College Connect!

Williams College Connect is many things: a platform to connect with current students and staff; a cache of videos and photos to bring Williams to life; and a place to get advice on the college search and application process. We've built communities you can join for all of the important stuff—academics, affordability, campus life, etc. Our students will be posting new content often and answering your questions in the hopes of making this year a bit smoother. We hope to meet you in this space!

Virtual Group Sessions

We are excited to connect with community-based organization (CBO), high school and middle school groups. When our campus is open again, we look forward to welcoming you in person! Until then, we’d love to meet with you virtually via Zoom. Please submit this request form at least 5 days before your desired date, and we’ll follow up to work out the details.

Questions? Please email Admission Counselor Courtney Oben


Williams in Your Area

While traditional fall admission events won't be held in person, we're eager as ever to connect. Please check this list of schools and organizations we'll be meeting with virtually in the coming weeks.

Transfer and Veteran Virtual Open House

Prospective transfer and veteran students (and their families and supporters!) are invited to connect with current students, faculty and staff on Friday, October 30. Participants will have the opportunity to attend classes, join admission and financial aid information sessions, schedule an appointment with the Registrar, and perhaps most importantly, chat with current students. Please check out the event schedule, and register here

Six Colleges Virtual Events

Six of the nation's top liberal arts colleges have teamed up to make the college search process a bit easier this year! Amherst, Bowdoin, Carleton, Pomona, Swarthmore, and Williams will host virtual events for students, families and counselors all year, and we encourage you to view the schedule here.


If cost is an obstacle to visiting campus, consider Windows on Williams (WOW), our fall fly-in program which provides an incredible virtual visit for selected students in the fall of their senior year. Please note that the Windows on Williams (WOW) application for Fall 2020 is now closed, but information about WOW 2021 will be shared in April 2021.
