Visiting the Historic Campus

Visitors are welcome to view the first two floors of the Sir Christopher Wren Building and the grounds of the Historic Campus. Photography is permitted in all of the public exhibition rooms. To protect the delicate finishes inside the Wren Building, food and beverages are strictly prohibited.

The Wren Building is primarily an academic building. In addition to being a ceremonial space for student organizations, university traditions, and weddings, the building also houses Religious Studies and holds regular classes Monday thru Friday.

We ask that all visitors take care not to disrupt class sessions or students who may be studying in the building.

Please observe all posted signs and refrain from opening closed doors.

The President’s House and the Brafferton are not open for public visitation.


The first floor of the Wren Building is wheelchair accessible via the ramp at the north entrance. Guests in wheelchairs have ready access to the Information Center, the Chapel, the Great Hall, the Classical Grammar School Room, the Piazza and the first floor restroom. 

The second floor is only accessible using the stairs. Staircases are located in all three wings of the building.
