Daily Visitation

CC For Yourself!

Colorado College continues to closely monitor developments in the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). You can find more information on our Coronavirus Updates and Resources webpage.

To protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, we are not welcoming outside visitors to campus until further notice. We will email all prospective students in our database once on-campus visitation commences again. If you haven't been receiving emails from us and would like to get on our mailing list for this update, please submit our inquiry form.

In the meantime, we invite you to check out our virtual opportunities intended to bring you closer to the CC community!


We strongly encourage every prospective student – especially every admitted student – to visit our campus, which is conveniently located in the heart of Colorado Springs. Our campus visits begin inside the historic Cutler Hall. As a part of your visit, we offer an inside look on the admission process, campus and residential tours, and one-on-one interviews. For additional information on where we are located, please refer to our directions to campus below.

If you are a visiting athlete and would like to meet with one of our coaches, please contact the athletics department.

While we do our best to accommodate drop-in visitors for information sessions and tours, we can better meet your expectations if you register in advance. We need advance notice of one week for class visits, and two weeks for an overnight stay.

Parking

Several spaces have been set aside for Admission visitors nearby, but otherwise parking is limited. You may park in the Admission spots, which are located directly in front of Montgomery Hall or directly in front of Boettcher Health Center (the round building). All spaces are marked "Reserved for Admission Visitors". You may also park in any designated visitor space on campus. Please print the parking pass that is sent with your confirmation email and place it on your dash. Or, when you check in at the Admission office, we will provide a daily parking pass. Limited street parking is also available; some spaces are metered, so please check as you park. Feel free to take a look at our Visitor Parking map.

Overnight Visitors

If you arranged with us to spend the night and arrive between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., come to the Office of Admission. We’ll be expecting you and will notify your host. If you plan to arrive between 5 and 8 p.m., we’ll leave a packet of information at the Worner Center Information Desk and have your host meet you there.

Group Visit Info

We encourage high school groups to visit campus throughout the year! In keeping with our priority of serving high school student visitors on campus, we cannot accommodate requests from elementary and middle school groups due to the taxing resources needed to host an enjoyable and informative visit.

Special Group Visit Guidelines

The Block Plan necessitates a schedule that is very different from most other schools. Since most of our classes meet in the mornings, our student guides are unavailable because they are in class. Therefore, we are most flexible to accommodate visits on weekday afternoons.

We are not able to accommodate groups over the weekend, during campus breaks, or during Block Breaks. All high school groups will be scheduled on a first come, first serve basis.

Scheduling your visit

Colorado College continues to closely monitor developments in the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The college’s multi-disciplinary COVID-19 Emergency Response Team is meeting regularly to assess the situation and plan for impacts to our campus community. To learn more about what CC is doing as an institution, please visit our Coronavirus Updates & Resources page on our website.

We are currently not welcoming guests to the Office of Admission. We will repopulate the link to request a group visit when we reopen. In the meantime, please visit this webpage for virtual opportunities.

Parking

Group buses should park in lot #C1 on the east side of campus (see map below). Smaller vehicles may park in any designated visitor space on campus (some of which are near Cutler Hall). A printable parking pass will be emailed to you in advance of your visit. Limited street parking is also available; some areas are metered, some are not.
