To get the most out of your time on campus, we recommend prospective students and their families attend an information session followed by a campus tour, each of which will last about an hour. Additional visit activities, such as a class visit or lunch with a current student, will extend your time on campus.

We welcome any and all visitors, but in order for us to help you plan an experience that will best meet your needs, we ask that you please register for your visit at least 48 hours in advance of your desired visit date.

Visit activities are limited during examination periods, breaks, and holidays.  Please see the Academic Break Calendar for a list of dates when visit activities may be limited. Our interactive registration will walk you through what’s available on the days you’d like to come.

Grinnell College welcomes individuals with disabilities and strives to provide the fullest access possible during the visit process. If any member of your party requires an accommodation as the result of a disability, you must request accommodations at least two weeks in advance of your scheduled visit to ensure that the fullest range of accommodation options are available. It may not be possible to meet all requested accommodations when accommodations are requested fewer than two weeks in advance.
