Pomona offers a program for prospective students who are high school seniors or transfer applicants to stay overnight in a residence hall as the guest of a current student. Visits are generally available Monday through Thursday nights during the fall semester. We provide visitors with:

  • A visitor's ID
  • Meal passes for dining halls
  • Library and athletics facilities passes
  • Cots and linens

Hosts can take visitors to their classes or visitors can select classes of interest from schedules available in the Office of Admissions.

  • We must receive your request at least two weeks before the requested date.
  • We can only accommodate visitors for one night.
  • We offer overnight stays on a first-come, first-served basis and can't guarantee availability.
  • Visitors can't stay overnight on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. We can suggest some local hotels for those days.

Scheduling an Overnight Visit

In March and April overnight visits are reserved for admitted students. On Sunday, April 9 and Sunday, April 23, admitted students are allowed to schedule an overnight visit in conjunction with Admitted Students Days. Please be aware that, due to limited availability, we can only accommodate overnight visitors on a first-come, first-served basis on these dates. Students will need to bring their own sleeping bags and pillows for their overnight stay on these dates. To request an overnight stay, login to destination.pomona.edu and go to the "On Campus" tab for the overnight stay request form.

You will receive information about your student host shortly before your stay.
