Campus Visits & Events
There is no better way to understand Bates College than by spending time on campus. During your visit, observe the day-to-day life of students here. Go to the library and see how students interact. Eat lunch in Commons. Sit down at any table and strike up a conversation. Review our Course Schedule and sit in on a class. Attend a concert, a lecture or a game.
If you or someone in your party will require some type of accommodation during your visit (e.g. wheelchair, hearing aid, etc.), please contact the Office of Admission at 1-855-228-3755 at least one full week prior to your visit so that the appropriate arrangements can be made.
Due to icy conditions, we recommend that you enter Lindholm via our entrance on Wood Street. For a campus map, please see here.
We look forward to hosting you on campus!
