The best way to learn about SUNY Oswego is to visit. We offer several visit options to take a student-guided campus tour, speak with an admissions counselor and to get a feel for campus life. Reservations are necessary for all programs, you can register online, or by calling 315.312.2250 during business hours.

Fall 2016 highlights include:

  • Individual appointments available daily

Information Programs

Information Programs include a small group presentation by an Admissions Counselor followed by a student-guided campus tour. Programs are offered Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays at 10 a.m. and select Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. These programs usually last about two and a half hours.

Individual appointments

Individual appointments and student-guided tours are offered Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Call 315.312.2250 to arrange an appointment.  A typical appointment will include an individual meeting with an Admissions Counselor and a hour and a half student-guided tour of campus.

Admitted Student Days

The day includes opportunities to speak with faculty, admissions staff, college offices and current students.  Student-guided campus tours, presentations and an information fair are also included. These events are for freshman and transfer students (of all majors) who have been accepted to Oswego. These events arenot mandatory, and they are not orientation programs where you will register for classes. 

Open Houses

Register now

Oswego offers one Open House program during the spring and summer, as well as three during the fall semester- these are your best opportunity to get an in-depth overview of SUNY Oswego's offerings. Space is limited, so please be sure to register early! 

  • Open House for High School Juniors- Monday, May 1, 2017
  • Summer Open House - Friday, July 14, 2017
    • This event is designed for everyone, but is geared towards students just starting their college search.

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.

Overnight visits

An overnight visit allows the opportunity to spend time with an Oswego student and experience what campus life is really like. ​SUNY Oswego offers overnight visits for freshman and transfer students who are 16 years or older and admitted to SUNY Oswego.  Overnight visitations take place during the spring semester; February to April. Visitations are offered Monday through Thursday, with limited availability. ​If you would like more information or have questions regarding scheduling an overnight stay, please contact Karen Archibee within the Office of Admissions at 315-312-2250 or email
