Visit Options at Transylvania

We are delighted that you plan to visit Transy, and we want your experience to be the best that it can be. Pictures can show you our beautiful buildings and well-manicured lawns, but they only tell part of the story. Visiting campus is the only way to get a true feel for the congenial spirit of our campus.



We offer three visit options:

  • Weekday Visits
  • Overnight Visits
  • Preview Days
Weekday visits during the academic year

Transylvania's admissions office is open for visits Monday–Friday from 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. EDT while classes are in session. You're welcome any day of the week; however, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are the best days to attend a class that might interest you. Please plan to spend at least half a day on campus.

Weekday visits during the summer

For more information or for help scheduling a visit, please call the admissions office at (800) 872-6798 or (859) 233-8242.

Overnight Visits

Many students wish to take advantage of our overnight visit program. An overnight will provide you with the best overall view of Transylvania because you can experience both the academic and social sides of campus life. We have a group of students, admissions ambassadors, who have an extra bed in their room just for you—no sleeping on the floor at Transy!

Space is limited, so we ask that you speak directly with our campus visit coordinator to schedule your overnight experience. She can be reached at (800) 872-6798 or (859) 233-8242.

Overnight visits are only available during the academic year.

2014-2015 schedule will be available in September.

On-Campus Events

During the academic year, Transylvania periodically offers on-campus events–such as fall and spring preview days, transfer student open house, and admitted senior scholarship recognition day–for prospective students and their families. Activities may include residence hall tours, student panel discussions, faculty presentations, or opportunities to learn about scholarships.

Check back for specific dates and details. We look forward to welcoming you on campus.
