Visit Campus

A beautiful day on campus by Johnson Hall

The best way to get to know Oxy is to come visit in person.


Attend our Spring Open House - Discover Occidental


We welcome all high school juniors and their families to join us on campus February 19, 2019. Discover Occidental is an event designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to the college search process. Learn more about what it means to experience a liberal arts and sciences education, to live and learn within our residential community, and to take advantage of Los Angeles as an extended classroom. We will also cover admission requirements and give an overview of how financial aid works at Oxy.

Attend our Transfer Open House 

We welcome all prospective transfer students to join us on campus on February 15, 2019. This event is designed to showcase all of the exciting opportunities available to transfer students at Oxy. Hear from Admission staff and current students, learn about our academic offerings, and enjoy a tour of campus. 

Register for a Tour

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.).
