The best way to get to know Oxy is to come visit in person.
Our fall open house gives prospective students the opportunity to Explore Occidental. Spend the day on our campus exploring what makes Occidental such a unique community. Prospective students and their families are invited to tour campus, attend student and faculty-led discussions, sit in on a class, and learn what it means to be an Oxy Tiger! Whether you want to hear more about our admission and financial aid process or find out about our distinct relationship to Los Angeles, Explore Occidental is your opportunity to engage with all aspects of student life here at Oxy. We hope you'll join us on campus on November 8, 2019!
We offer tours and information sessions Monday through Friday year-round. Saturday morning tours are also offered between Labor Day and early December, and in April.
Our student-led tour is an approximately one hour and 15 minute walk through the campus. The information session, which lasts 45 minutes and is led by one of our admission officers, provides more details about the college and the admissions process. Visitors should check in at the Office of Admission (Collins House) for their tour and/or information session.
Our office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for visits (as well as Saturdays between Labor Day and early December, plus during the month of April from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.).

Once you've scheduled your visit, check out the campus map and tips for getting to campus. If you can't make it to one of our tour times but will be on campus, we have a self-guided tour. You can also experience Oxy's campus through our video.
