More info coming soon!

  • Pre-Arrival COVID Testing & Vaccination Requirements

    Check back a little later for updated Fall 2023 info.

    All students will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test completed three to five days prior to their arrival. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days (prior to your move-in date), you will not be required to provide a PCR test at this time (unless you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms). Students should refer to the Pathway Forward: Frequently Asked Questions website for more detailed information about vaccination requirements and pre-arrival testing.

    Families, parents, and guests will not be required to provide a negative COVID test, but everyone—students, family, staff—will be required to wear masks indoors during the move-in process. Masking outdoors is optional. We fully support community members who choose to mask outdoors, and masks will be available at check-in.

    By Automobile | The Claremont Colleges are easily reached from either Interstate 10 or 210 Freeway.

    Parking | Once you have entered the College grounds via Ninth Street, park in East Mesa parking lot, the first lot on your right.
