Virtual Campus Tour


Welcome to the Wellesley College virtual tour.

We invite you to take a few minutes to explore our campus, located twelve miles west of Boston. You will be able to
look inside some residence halls, classrooms, dormitories, dining halls, and campus hangouts. Although this tour will give you a snapshot of the Wellesley campus, we also hope that you'll consider visiting Wellesley in person, taking an actual campus tour, and attending an information session and possibly a class.

The Wellesley campus extends over 500 acres of woodlands, meadows, and water. Nestled into the rolling hills is a mix of 19th-century towered brick buildings arranged in quadrangles and newer buildings with avant-garde architecture. In the fall the heavily wooded campus looks as if it has been splattered with paint, with foliage turning variations of red, orange, and yellow. In the winter a blanket of white often covers the grounds, and in the spring the campus comes alive with blooming daffodils, rhododendrons, and lilacs.

Within 30 minutes is the Boston / Cambridge area with all of its cultural, educational, and entertainment resources. The College provides regular bus service to transport students from campus to Cambridge and downtown Boston. In addition, more than 50 other colleges and universities with 250,000 college students are located in the Greater Boston area.
