Planning a Visit
The admission office is open during the week from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on select Saturdays in both the fall and spring. Information sessions and campus tours are available throughout the year—when you request a visit online, you will select a specific date and time.
Join us on Monday, October 12 for Discover Reed, our fall preview day! This event is the most in-depth introduction to the college we offer. Visit us and take behind-the-scenes tours of campus, including our science facilities and Performing Arts Building; participate in forums with staff and faculty; sit in on classes and open houses; and hang out with plenty of current Reed students. (Take a look at the 2014 schedule.) High school seniors who live more than 100 miles from Reed may also stay for a slumber party-style night in our residence halls that includes special evening events. Ready to explore? Registration for Discover Reed is now open.
ROME (November 5-7, 2015), one of two multicultural visit programs organized by Reed, is a fly-in event held each fall for US high school seniors from historically underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds (students of African, Asian, Latino, Native American, and Pacific Island descent). The program invites 35-to-40 high school seniors from around the US to campus for a three-day, two-night exploration of Reed and the City of Portland.
Junior Visit Day
Junior Visit Day is an exploration of the college admission process. Need some financial aid myths busted? Wondering how to write a personal statement? High school juniors and their families can visit Reed and take workshops from our experienced admission counselors on these and other topics. Ask questions and get answers while experiencing Reed’s campus, including lunch and info sessions—plus tours of our campus and our brand new Performing Arts Building. This event is open to current high school juniors only.
We welcome our newly admitted students to join us for Reed Admit Day (RAD) and discover what makes the Reed community so unique! You'll see our conference classes in action, talk with faculty and students, and discover the academic departments that inspire you. Learn about student activities, residence life, financial aid, and a variety of on-campus services.
Admitted students living more than 100 miles from Reed are welcome to spend one night as a guest in a residence hall. If you are within 100 miles of Reed and want to stay overnight on campus, please make arrangements to do so on another night in April.
