Accommodations

Thinking about visiting Juniata? Great! There are many different opportunities to visit now and throughout the year. This summer, take a tour of our campus and meet one-on-one with one of our admission counselors. During the academic year, high school seniors and transfers may also request to meet with faculty, financial planning staff, observe a class and talk with coaches. If you have questions or would like to schedule a visit*, call Pamela Zilch at (814) 641-3428 or toll-free at1-877-586-4282. However, if an actual visit isn't possible at this time, take a virtual tour.

*Please provide at least a one week notice so we are adequately staffed to accommodate your visit.

Personal Visit*

Summertime is a terrific time to visit our campus and check out beautiful Central Pennsylvania.  Come and take a student-guided campus tour and meet personally with one of our admission counselors.  Tours are offered on the hour from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, followed by some one-on-one time with an admission counselor.  When scheduling a summer visit, plan to spend two hours with us.

*Please provide at least a one week notice so we are adequately staffed to accommodate your visit.

We accommodate chaperoned prospective student groups up to 50 in size Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Group tours are offered at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and group information sessions are offered at 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. or 3 p.m. To schedule your visit call Pam Zilch, Campus Visit Coordinator at 814-641-3428, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Please provide two weeks' notice so we are adequately staffed to accommodate your visit.
