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.
Discover Reed is the 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.
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 Discover Reed 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 the fall.
