One of the best ways to know if you will take root and flourish in our community is to visit us.

Campus Visits

We want to welcome you, and we want you to get to know us during an on-campus visit, an on-campus program, or both!

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.

We're happy to give you some tips for planning your visit to Grinnell.

Virtual Tours

To get a sense of campus before you arrive, or if you can't make it to campus, you can experience Grinnell via your computer or mobile device. Go on an interactive, guided tour of the campus. Your tour includes 360-degree panoramas with great views of the campus, classrooms, performance spaces, athletic venues, residences, and the town of Grinnell. There are two ways to take the tour:

  • Use any device to view it in your web browser.
  • On your smartphone, download the Grinnell College Virtual Tour app for your iOS or Android device. With the app, you can take the standard tour, or get the full Virtual Reality experience with a Google cardboard or VR headset.

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.
