The Office of Admission and Financial Aid welcomes prospective students and families to discover Olin! Our on-campus visits are a great way to see into the life of an Oliner, and to learn all about our hands-on, project-based, collaborative approach to learning!

Ways to Visit Olin

Come experience Olin in-person with our On-Campus Visits. Students, Faculty, and Staff are excited to welcome you to campus to showcase all that Olin has to offer. Our tour seasons are September through November, March through May, and June through August. Register here for an On-Campus Visit.

Information Session and Campus Tour

Our On-Campus Visit includes a one-hour student-led tour of campus and a 45-minute information session with an Olin Admission Counselor. Our visits will give you the opportunity to learn all about Olin's unique admission process, curriculum, financial aid process, and life at Olin.

Weekend Campus Tour

Discover Olin by taking a 60-minute in-person campus tour of Olin College. Our tours are led by current Olin students and will give you an inside look into what life is like at Olin by hearing about the community and culture through an Oliner’s point of view.


Group Visit

If you are looking to visit Olin with a group, please fill out this form. Group visits typically include a one-hour student-led tour, but can be tailored to the group if resources allow. Our tour seasons are September through November, March through May, and June through August. We may not be able to accommodate a group visit outside of these times.

Live Virtual Tour

Join an Olin student for a 60-minute live and interactive tour experience. Learn about the student experience through personal anecdotes, photos, and videos. Experience Olin's campus, community, and culture through an Oliner's point of view.

Live Virtual Tours will be held on Monday evenings, from March to May. Register for one here.

If you can't make it to one of our scheduled On-Campus Visits, we invite you to tour our campus on your own! Our self-guided tour allows you to tour Olin's campus any time you want and at your own pace with the free Guidebook App. Using the App as your guide, you'll be led through campus and will listen to voice-over narrations from current Olin students at 12 different stops on campus.

The tour takes approximately 30 minutes to complete if you listen to the audio at each stop, but you are welcome to explore campus for as long as you'd like. The walking portion of the tour is about 0.5 miles. The entire route is outdoors, and you will not go inside any campus facilities.

If you have time, take the Babson mini campus tour (included in the App) to see the places Oliners frequent the most on Babson's campus!

Instructions on how to download the free Guidebook App and access the tour will be sent via email once you submit your registration.
