Group visits

SUNY Oswego welcomes groups from high schools, community colleges, and community-based organizations to visit our lakeside campus.

Group visits consist of an information session with an Admissions counselor and student intern as well as a walking tour of our campus. You are also welcome to experience campus dining in one of our dining halls. Lunch arrangements are available at a discounted group rate.  

We are unable to accommodate groups larger than 50 students due to staff and tour guide limitations, and Oswego's commitment to providing each group with a quality experience. Group visits are available on select Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please be aware that we will make every effort to accommodate your group, however certain times of the year we cannot accommodate group visits (i.e. college breaks, high school break weeks, and holidays).  

If you would like to bring a group onto campus, please fill out our registration form. Group requests should be made at least two weeks in advance of your visit. Please contact the office of admission at 315.312.2250 or with any questions.
