The Graduate Admissions Office is located in Room 222 on the second floor of Robertson Hall. The staff is able to answer prospective student questions between the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. but we do not conduct formal one-on-one meetings or interviews.
We do not recommend visiting on Friday as there are very few classes in session.
On-Campus Information Sessions
The School's Admissions Office holds group information sessions for applicants to our degree programs twice each week from mid-September through November. To make an appointment for an information session, prospective applicants should contact the Admissions Office at 609-258-4836. See our Recruiting Schedule for more information.
Prospective applicants to all programs are welcome to visit the School and sit in on classes any time during the academic year when classes are in session. Those interested in such a visit should contact the Admissions Office; however, we are not able to personally meet with students while we are processing and reviewing applications from December to March.
The Woodrow Wilson School does not conduct tours. Our classrooms and administrative offices are located in Robertson Hall, and the Donald E. Stokes Library is located in Wallace Hall along with some of our Centers.
Meeting with faculty and students
Our office does not arrange visits with faculty or current students until after applicants are admitted in mid-March. Prospective students may look at the faculty directory or student bios in order to determine shared areas of interest. We do not give out their contact information for privacy reasons, but you may contact them by searching for their information using the Princeton University search. If they have made their information public you may contact them directly and they will respond if they are willing and able.
Please be advised that faculty typically refer prospective masters students back to the Admissions Office. If you are a prospective PhD candidate wishing to contact a faculty member with whom you'd like to do research, you must be very specific in your interest and intentions. General inquiries to faculty will often be referred back to the Admissions Office. Contacting faculty is not required for admission. Faculty do not pre-screen potential applicants.
