Campus Visit FAQs

What is an Information Session?

Our Information Sessions are conducted by Undergraduate Admissions Student Ambassador as well as Admissions professionals. The information session includes information about academics, admission requirements, the application process, student life, scholarships, and financial aid opportunities. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about The College at Brockport.  While accepted students are welcome to join, this session is geared toward high school juniors and seniors as well as transfer students who have not yet applied.  Accepted seniors are encouraged to arrive early for your tour so that you may meet with an Admissions professional if you have specific questions. 

Prospective transfer students may prefer to meet one-on-one with an Admissions professional during our walk-in hours. We encourage you to bring an unofficial transcript(s) to determine admissibility.  Course-by-course evaluation of credit is completed after being admitted.


How long is the campus tour?

Our tours are led by current Brockport students and typically last 75 to 90 minutes.


What will I see on the campus tour?

On tour, you will see our college union, academic classrooms, our athletic facilities, two styles of residence hall rooms, and more. Please be sure to dress for the weather and comfort as this is a walking tour and part of it is outside.


Can I eat lunch on campus?

Yes. The College at Brockport is proud to be highly rated in SUNY for dining services by our own students. There are a variety of dining options for you to choose from:


Brockport offers a number of eateries, cafes and on-the-go options for our students and visitors. Union Square, located in the Seymour Student Union next to the Admissions Office, provides a collection of shoppes ranging from salads and sandwiches to pizza, pasta, sushi and more. On the other side of campus, the Kinetic Kafe features a modern, innovative menu. Or choose from one of our many cafes across campus -- Jitterbugs, Aerie Cafe or Hartwell Cafe. All of these options offer dine-in or take-out options and accept cash or credit for your convenience.


If you are interested in eating lunch in one of our dining halls, please ask at the Undergraduate Admissions' front desk for a lunch ticket. This ticket will allow you to purchase a discounted lunch -- $7.50 per person -- for an all-you-can-eat dining experience at either Brockway or Harrison Dining Halls. You will pay for your lunch ticket at the dining hall and you can pay with either cash or credit. Please note, the dining halls are only open when classes are in session; they are not available during academic breaks or over the summer. 

If you would like lunch in either dining hall to be a part of your campus visit, you will need to register for the 2 pm tour* and your visit will look like the schedule below. Be sure to arrive between 11:15 and 11:45 am on the day of your visit so you'll have plenty of time to explore all the dining hall has to offer.

I am scheduling a group visit. Can my group eat on campus?

Yes. The College at Brockport is proud to be highly rated in SUNY for dining services by our own students and offers the same on-campus dining options to our group visitors as noted above. If you would like dining on campus to be part of your group visit, please indicate that on your request form and we will work with you to make the necessary accommodations.

It is important for us to know if your group plans to eat on campus -- even if you are planning to go to Union Square or the Kinetic Kafe instead of a dining hall -- so that we can alert Dining Services to ensure they prepare an adequate amount of food.
