Fall 2021 Reopening Plans
We will reopen our campuses for classes, activities, and residential living in Fall 2021. Find the latest information on our Fall 2021 Plan page.

See what life could be like here.

The health and wellbeing of our university community and members of our extended community are always first, so in keeping with federal and state health and safety guidelines related to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), Lesley University has postponed all on-campus visits.

While a visit to campus is on hold (for now), we still encourage you to explore this page and discover all the other ways you can check out our virtual tour of campus, and see what life here is like. And as always, our dedicated counselors are here to answer your questions about anything and are currently scheduling virtual meetings.

Campus Tours

We know how important it is to experience the Lesley campus in person and see yourself as part of our community. At this time, tour registration is open and limited to one student and up to three guests. You'll have an individual, socially-distanced tour led by a current Lesley student or staff member and will be required to submit a COVID-19 Self-Assessment Form prior to your visit. COVID-19 safety guidelines will be required while on-campus.

If you want to visit on a specific date and time that is not available, call us at 617.349.8800 or email admissions@lesley.edu. We'll try to accommodate your request as best we can.
