Visit Opportunities (Virtual & On Campus)

We are happy to announce we will re-open for on-campus visitors starting July 6th. Our re-opening is designed to provide the optimal on-campus environment and to minimize the risks of COVID-19 exposure to campus visitors and the campus community. We will continue to offer virtual visit experiences throughout the year.

On-Campus Visits
We look forward to hosting you on campus. Each session lasts approximately an hour and 45 minutes.  During that time, you will enjoy a tour of campus and meet with an admissions representative. We have made a few changes to our campus visit policy to ensure the safety of our visitors and campus community.

Virtual Week of Workshops
We understand that even in a normal year the college search and application process can be confusing and even intimidating. Our Admissions Staff enjoy working with students and their families to help you through this journey. We are offering a week of general, virtual information sessions focusing on different parts of the college search and application process, culminating in a case study event where you will act as an admissions committee and make admissions decisions on mock applicants.

If you're planning a visit to Roanoke College, you'll find a beautiful campus in a classic college town, with a vibrant city and beautiful countryside just minutes away. We're only 10 minutes from the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport, with direct flights to more than nine cities in the Midwest and East Coast. Roanoke is on the Northeast Regional Amtrak line. We're 3-4 hours by car from Charlotte, N.C., Richmond, Va., and Washington, D.C.
