Visit the Campus

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!

Potsdam Spotlight

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!

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.
