Penn State Berks is pleased to announce that limited on-campus tours have resumed this March. Pre-registration is required, and participants must agree to follow all safety protocols outlined in the Visit Requirements. All students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Tours are limited to one student with up to two parents or guardians per tour (no other guests are allowed).

Tours will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and are open to both in-state and out-of-state students. Spring 2021 tours will be given by Penn State Berks Lion Ambassador student tour guides.

Prospective students will have an opportunity to view a staged residence hall suite, since coronavirus safety restrictions prohibit visitors entering residence halls where students currently reside.     

Students who would like to schedule an on-campus visit to Penn State Berks should be aware of the following Visit Requirements:

·You must complete a Campus Visit Acknowledgement form and bring it with you on the day of your visit. For registrants under the age of 18, the form must be signed by the parent/guardian who will accompany you.

·All visitors, students, and staff are required to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing while on campus. If you or anyone in your party are unable to wear a face mask, we are happy to accommodate you at a virtual visit.

·Any student under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All guests must be listed on the registration form. No more than two guests may accompany the student.

·If you or anyone in your party becomes ill, you must contact the campus to cancel your visit. We will be happy to reschedule it for a later date.

·Penn State may postpone or cancel your visit for any reason for the safety of our guests, students, and staff. You will be notified if your visit is canceled.

Tours are first-come first-served and require students to register at least 48 hours in advance, and all adults must sign and bring the Campus Visit Acknowledgement.
