Prospective students are invited to experience student life by staying overnight in a residence hall with a current student. This is a great opportunity to sample dining hall food, experience the campus community, and attend a variety of evening events.
Overnight visits are available on a limited basis Sunday, Monday, Thursday, and Friday nights during the academic year for high school seniors. Overnights are not offered on select dates. See below for suspended overnight visit dates, or consult the visit calendar for a detailed schedule.
Overnight stays must be reserved at least 2 weeks in advance by calling the Campus Visit Office at 1-800-622-6243. After your appointment is made, you will receive confirmation by e-mail and further details about your upcoming visit.
Please be aware that a parent or guardian must sign and return the Visitation Permission/Release Form (included in the email confirmation) at least three business days prior to the visit, or the prospective student will not be permitted to stay overnight. Also, please note the following guidelines:
- Due to a high volume of requests, overnight visits are for one night only.
- Check-in time for the overnight is 4:30 p.m. the afternoon of the stay.
- Check-out time for the overnight is 9:00 a.m. the following morning.
- Current Oberlin students host prospective students in their dorm rooms. You will need a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, and toiletries.
