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.
We look forward to hosting you on campus!
