Spend the Night

Curious about daily life at Swarthmore? Why not spend the night? High school seniors can spend time visiting classes, attending events, and speaking with current Swatties. Visits are arranged Sunday through Thursday nights during the fall semester. Plan to meet your host at the Office of Admissions in Parrish Hall at 4:00 pm the day of the overnight stay (unless you make alternate plans). In order to be able to accommodate as many people as possible, stays are limited to one night.

We request that you register at least 14 days prior to your visit. If you have questions or need help, contact the Admissions Office at 610-328-8300 or 1-800-667-3110. 

Prospective student-athletes who are interested in making an overnight visit in conjunction with the athletics department should contact coaches directly to arrange their visit. A list of coaches and their contact information is available online

Overnight guests must submit a signed Overnight Policy permission form at least 7 days prior to their visit. It must be signed by a parent or guardian. You may email permission forms to hosting@swarthmore.edu or, alternately, our fax number is (610) 957-6187. Students will not be permitted to stay overnight without this form.

Current Swarthmore students host visitors in their dorm rooms, so make sure you bring a sleeping bag!
