Visiting Campus

Have you thought about visiting the SAIS campus in Washington, DC? Visiting campus is a great way to get a better feel for the school and learn more about its program and other offerings. If you would like to visit SAIS, we have several options for you, depending on your needs.

  • Admissions Open Office Hours: The Admissions Office is open for walk-in visits Monday through Friday, 2-5 pm. You can speak with an admissions officer or a current student to learn more about SAIS and the application process.
  • Meet with a Current Student: If you’ve already done your research on SAIS and you know what area of study you would like to pursue, you might be interested in speaking with a student who is pursuing the same area of study. If you would like to meet with a current student, please email the SAIS Admissions office at
  • Visit a Class: If you want to know what academic life is like at SAIS, a great way to do that is by attending a class. Please note that class visits are only available Monday through Thursday during the regular semester, and must be requested at least 10 business days in advance. You can request a class visit on your MySAIS page.
  • Attend a Campus Event: Another way to get a feel for the SAIS experience is to attend one of the events that we regularly host on the SAIS campus. While some events are limited to current SAIS students and/or alumni, many events are open to the general public. To view upcoming events, please click here.
  • Other On-Campus Events: In addition to the events listed above, the Admissions Office hosts a number of on-campus information sessions, taster lectures, and other events throughout the summer and fall. To be notified of these kind of events, please sign up for MySAIS.

Thanks for reading!
