Academic Open Houses

Our virtual academic open houses are designed to give you the opportunity to chat with faculty and academic staff about the various majors, minors, certificates, and programs available to you. You can click on each department or academic program below to learn more about their academic offerings. 

We hope these sessions will provide you with helpful information for your meetings with your College advisor and your course registration later this summer. Most sessions will be recorded and available for viewing following the live presentations.

Registration Instructions

These sessions are for enrolled students and their families. Please click on Register Now next to each open house to be directed to the registration page. If you are a student, please activate your Rochester email address BEFORE registering. Then, please enter your full name and your University email address (@u.rochester.edu) on the registration page. To register as a family member, simply enter your full name and email address. 

The University of Rochester is committed to providing inclusive experiences and equal access to programs and services. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation, please contact the Office of Orientation and First-Year Programs at orientation@rochester.edu. In all situations, a good faith effort (up until the time of the event) will be made to provide accommodations.
