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.
Reed Admit Day (RAD)
We welcome our newly admitted students to join us for Reed Admit Day (RAD) on either April 10 or April 24 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 as part of their RAD experience. 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.
Discover Reed is our most in-depth introduction to the college we offer. Visit us and take behind-the-scenes tours of campus, including our nuclear reactor and canyon; participate in forums with staff and faculty; sit in on classes and open houses; and hang out with plenty of current Reed students. 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.
Discover Reed Fly-in Program
Reed invites a highly qualified group of high school seniors from around the US to campus for a three-day, two-night exploration of Reed and the City of Portland. Students stay in residence halls with current students and participate in Discover Reed, a program of classroom visits and student-professor engagement opportunities. Just ten minutes from downtown Portland, Reed also arranges trips to explore highlights of the city. All travel is arranged and paid for by the college (including flights to and from Portland).
Junior Visit Day
If you're a high school junior who wants to explore the college admission process, join us for Junior Visit Day on February 20, 2017 or March 25, 2017. 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. This event is open to current high school juniors only.
