Visit PCA&D’s Campus

Out of concern for the health of our communities, we are not accepting any requests for campus tours or in-person appointments at this time. We would love to welcome you to PCA&D at a future date.

If you are interested in applying to PCA&D for Fall 2020 or Spring 2021, we have put together virtual opportunities for you to experience the campus and interact with our Admissions Counselors. Watch a campus tour as part of our Virtual Open House or join a weekly Online Drop-in session with one of our counselors.

If you or your student(s) are hoping to join our community after Fall 2020, please stay tuned as we announce updates and new visit opportunities this Fall. We will continue to be in touch and will let you know as soon as we are able to accept in-person visit requests again.


Open House Events

Attending an Open House at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design is a great way to get to know our community and facilities.

The City as Our Campus

Want to learn more about Lancaster City? Consider experiencing a First Friday (first Friday of every month) or Music Friday (third Friday of every month). Our city has put its creative talents to use and moved these staple events online to bring joy and music into people’s homes until downtown fully reopens.
