While the campus remains open, all buildings with card access will be locked to the public. All faculty, staff and students will need their New Paltz ID to access all exterior doors of those buildings (This is a similar process to our current weekend policy).
The Admission staff is currently working remotely with limited on-campus availability, but we would love to hear from you. The best way to reach the Office of Undergraduate Admission is by email. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We've also gone virtual! You can set-up an appointment to speak with a counselor online; we'd love to answer your questions! Register here today!
Visits to campus
We recognize that many students would like to visit our campus, however, New Paltz has decided to suspend most of our on-campus tour options. We are offering a limited amount of on-campus tours. Please visit our website to view our virtual and on-campus visit options.
Enjoy a campus tour from the comfort of your own home. Please join us on a virtual journey through our campus. Explore the SUNY New Paltz campus in a fully immersive, virtual 360-degree experience. Tour our academic buildings, visit the Sojourner Truth Library, go into the Student Union, and explore our residence halls, the dining facilities, and much more.
Instead of touring with other visitors, a prospective student may pick up a Self-Guided tour booklet from the Hopfer Admission Center and tour campus on your own. Our tour booklet contains a suggested tour route and descriptions of our buildings and features. We invite you to take a self-guided tour, however, if you feel ill or believe that you may have been exposed to someone that has the coronavirus, we would ask you to postpone your visit. We ask that you observe these measures for your own health as well as the health and well-being of our campus community. Visitors are asked to follow standard safety measures, such as frequent hand washing. Our custodial staff as well as the admission staff are taking numerous measures to protect the safety and well-being of everyone on our campus.
