Visit

Visiting is a wonderful way to get to know the College of the Atlantic community. While you're here you can sit in on classes, meet with students and professors, check out campus activities, and sample our award-winning food at the Blair Dining Hall or Sea Urchin Cafe.

Tours are offered on weekdays at 10 a.m., noon, and 2 p.m. — contact the admission office to sign up for a tour and to schedule your admission interview. It's best to visit on weekdays when term is in session (see the academic calendar and current course schedule below). During the school year, a guest room is available for prospective students who would like to stay overnight in a campus residence. For those wishing to stay on-campus, please schedule your stay at least two weeks in advance to confirm that space is available.

We are happy to pick you up at the airport or bus station. Please contact the Admission Office to arrange your campus visit: 207-288-5015, 800-528-0025 or email inquiry@coa.edu. We look forward to hosting you on campus.
