Visiting Eastman

 

 

ARRANGING FOR A TOUR OF EASTMAN

 


To fully appreciate and experience Eastman, prospective students and their parents are invited to attend an information session and tour, hear a concert, and explore what Eastman has to offer.

Information sessions and tours for prospective students are available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 10AM. We kindly request at least twenty-four hours’ notice. If you are hoping to meet with a faculty member during your visit, please contact him or her via email as far in advance as possible to check availability.

Sign up for an information session and tour through the following link:
https://apply.esm.rochester.edu/visit/

or call the Admissions Office between the hours of 9am and 4pm, Monday through Friday, at 585.274.1060 or 800.388.9695. If you are visiting during regular business hours but are unable to attend one of our scheduled tours, a member of the Admissions staff will be happy to answer your questions and provide you with a map for a self-guided tour.  The Admissions Office is not open on weekends.

Because Eastman’s facilities are in constant use throughout the year, the School only conducts admissions-related tours for prospective students. However, special requests for tours are sometimes considered depending on the availability of space, staff, and on the nature of the request.

VISITING THE UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER RIVER CAMPUS

 


Students who wish to visit the River Campus should contact the undergraduate admissions office at the College at 585.275.3221 or plan your visit online. Because the College offers several tours and information sessions per day, we recommend scheduling first at Eastman, then at River Campus.

Students who want only the Bachelor of Music degree from Eastman do not need to apply to the University of Rochester. However, we encourage prospective students to tour the River Campus since Eastman students routinely take advantage of the College’s academic and extracurricular offerings.
