Planning a Spring Break visit to Stanford?
In order to maximize the benefit of your campus visit, the Stanford Visitor Center strongly encourages you to plan your visit for some time outside the peak period of March 16 through April 14, 2019.
Though we certainly understand the desire and practicality of utilizing your Spring Break to visit campuses, we strongly encourage you to reconsider your dates if you can! For prospective students who are interested in getting a good feel for the Stanford campus and the chance to see and do many things, we encourage you to try to do so during a time other than the peak period of March 16 through April 14. These are the days of highest visitor volume all year. Unfortunately, they are also the dates when we have the fewest students available to provide tours, due to the final exams period and Stanford's own Spring Break. You can expect tour groups to average from 200-350 people per time slot, and only a few of the wonderful offerings that come with visiting while we are in actual academic session are available. The best times of year to visit Stanford are from mid-January through early March, from mid-April through late May (before Memorial Day), and from early October through Mid-November -- when we are in full session, full sunshine, fully programmed, and fully staffed! You will have the opportunity to sit in on classes, to have moderately sized tour groups, to interact with current undergrads, and to explore student life as it is happening. No matter when you come, however, we will do our very best to make your Stanford visit an enjoyable and informative one!
