Visit us (Virtually, for now)
There really is no substitute for experiencing SUNY Potsdam for yourself, and meeting our incredible faculty, staff and students firsthand. But while our nation responds to the pandemic, we hope you can take advantage of all our virtual options (just keep scrolling for more!), and get in touch with us, so that you can schedule a future campus visit, as soon as it is safe again! We can’t wait to meet you.
Whether you’re a junior starting your college search, a senior finding your fit, or a prospective graduate student looking for information on our admissions process, our counselors are here to chat one-on-one with you for 30 minutes and answer any questions you may have!
Each weekday our admissions office will host live presentations and live chat sessions with different departments from academic and student life. These sessions are an hour in length and you'll be able to ask those burning questions from our faculty and staff... live!
The Undergraduate Admissions Office is open and available via phone, email or virtual sessions. Unfortunately, due to the new travel and social distancing requirements, we are not accepting any visitors at this time, including walk-ins. Get started with our virtual tour, then schedule a virtual session or a virtual phone interview with one of our counselors.
The Undergraduate Admissions Office is excited to offer prospective students and applicants the ability to connect with our admissions staff virtually, from the comfort of your home.

SUNY Potsdam is excited to announce a new virtual way for prospective students and families to experience a SUNY Potsdam Open House. We have prepared informative videos pertaining to admissions, academics, financial aid and applied learning, among other topics. Though no virtual experience can compare to visiting our beautiful campus in person, we hope these videos can give you a feel of the SUNY Potsdam experience.
We look forward to having all prospective students and their families visit SUNY Potsdam after the COVID-19 situation has subsided. We plan to have summer events like Destination: Potsdam and large group visits continue as soon as we are able to safely do so. Please visit our Events Calendar for a full list of summer events.
Individual Campus Visit
A campus visit includes a comprehensive tour of the campus, including the Maxcy Hall Athletic Complex, and the award-winning Performing Arts Center. Prospective students will also tour our #1 rated dining facilities.
Reserve your spot now!
At this time, no group visits are permitted until August. Please check back for information on group visit scheduling.
Visit from a Distance
Our virtual tour remains a great way to get a feel for everything SUNY Potsdam has to offer. Take a peek inside to virtually visit: a townhouse dorm room, a painting studio, the fitness center, our geology museum, our biggest concert hall, the WISER Greenhouse, the dance theater, and the ice arena, and our riverfront park.
