Barnard’s unique charm is in its contradictions: small and large, college and university, campus and city, all women and coeducational. The best way to figure out if we are the college for you is to visit. To help you learn more, we invite you to join us for one of two on-campus programs this fall to hear from current students, faculty, administrators and staff. These programs are a wonderful opportunity to envision what life would be like on our campus.

Please note: Because of the volume of students who will be on campus for Open House, we ask that you limit your class visit selection to one option. If you end up making another visit to the Barnard campus at another time, we welcome you to visit another class at that time. Class visits are open to prospective students only.
Registration for both Open House Programs are now closed.
If you did not register for Open House in advance, we will likely be able to accommodate your interest in attending as a walk in. We will ask you for your name and some additional contact information when you arrive. Please plan to stay for the full program, including the two post-lunch panels!
Of course, they are! We are happy to see parents, guardians, even sibilings join you in your visit to campus. We must, however, restrict class visits to students only.
Campus tours are available during check in at 9:30 AM and at 4:10 PM at the end of the formal program.
We regret that we are unable to officially accommodate an overnight visit during the fall, but we do offer the opportunity for admitted students to stay overnight during our spring on-campus admitted student programs. (Contact a Barnard friend if you would like to unofficially stay overnight.)
When you check in for the program on campus, you will have the opportunity to pick a "ticket" for a class during one of the prescheduled times available. Note from the tentative schedule that panel times are aligned with class times, so you will have some choices to make!
The availability of tickets match spaces available in classes and are limited, so we must limit students to only one class visit during their Open House visit. You will pick your "ticket" upon check in. We are unable to offer the opportunity for parents to attend a class.
