Arrange your own host: If you know a current Oberlin College student, feel free to arrange your own visit by following these three steps:

  • Contact your student host to confirm eligibility.
  • Register your stay to receive a visitor card, which provides three meals on campus.
  • Complete the Visitation Permission/Release form and submit it at least 3 days prior to your visit. Students who do not complete this form will not be permitted to stay overnight.

Students who choose to stay overnight should be prepared to sleep on a dorm room floor, and should bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, and toiletries.
