Visiting the Visitor Center
What to expect during your visit at the visitor center.
A UW student will be at the front desk to help you with any questions when you visit during in-person office hours. Please note that many offices and buildings on campus are still closed and/or operating remotely. If there is a specific office/department that you would like to connect with, we are happy to provide you with their contact information!
If you are you looking to register for an in-person campus tour , you can sign up here ! For any questions about in-person campus tours, please contact our Office of Admissions , either through phone or email ( [email protected] ).
As part of our COVID-19 Prevention Plan, we have implemented additional office policies to ensure the safety of our visitors, students, staff, and faculty.
Anyone not following these COVID-19 prevention policies, may be asked to leave the Visitor Center office.
Feeling sick? Stay home!
- If you are sick or experiencing mild symptoms of illness (even if you are fully vaccinated), you are not permitted in the Visitor Center office.
- We will be happy to assist you with your question(s) through phone (206-543-9198) or email ( [email protected] ).
- Face coverings are recommended indoors regardless of vaccination status with the exception of settings where face coverings are required (e.g., UW Shuttles, heathcare, and patient care activities).
- While not required in most indoor settings , face coverings remain an important intervention against respiratory illnesses of all kinds and offer an additional layer of protection. Some people may choose to wear a mask out of consideration for people who may be at high risk in public settings, or if they want to further reduce their own risk for any reason. Please remember that individuals may need to or choose to wear — or not wear — masks for a wide range of reasons. Thank you for respecting those needs and choices.
- Please refer to the UW Face Covering Policy for additional details and FAQ.
Physical distancing and room capacity

Come Visit Us
Our Campus Visit Experience typically involves:
- a 45-60 minute information session presented by an admissions officer and
- an hour-long campus tour led by a student ambassador.
Depending on the academic calendar, class schedules, and the availability of our staff and student ambassadors, our program offerings may include only an information session or a tour or contain both in reversed order. Please take note of what is offered on the desired day for your visit.
The information session will cover academic offerings, the application process and evaluation, financial aid, scholarships, and more. Walking tours focus on a day in the life of a typical W&L student, from where they sleep, eat, study, and play to the fun traditions and lore that make Washington and Lee and the town of Lexington special.
When both an information session and tour are offered, please plan to participate in both programs to ensure you leave with a comprehensive view of all W&L has to offer.
- Use the calendar below to click on the day you wish to visit.
