Getting to Admission Office
Regular visits to the Ashoka University campus located in Rajiv Gandhi Education City, Kundli (Haryana) in the National Capital Region are organised and coordinated by admissions representatives. This is so that visitors can experience student life and activities on campus, and interact with current students, administration, faculty and the admissions team.
Those who require alternate dates* for a campus visit can write to firstname.lastname@example.org with dates preferred.
*Please note that visitors on alternate dates are not guaranteed interactions with faculty or the option of attending classes, as it is contingent on availability of faculty members and the timetable. Arriving on campus unannounced does not guarantee a campus tour.

Ashoka at your school
Our School Sessions are interactions with students of classes X, XI and XII of the schools we visit. Members of our Outreach Team have visited over 350 of the best schools across Asia and the Middle East and have held sessions to discuss the merits of and need for liberal education in India with bright students from these institutions. Recently, our outreach activities have also extended to a few African countries.
During these sessions, our team members work with students to better understand their perceptions of higher education. They are a way to create a dialogue between the University and its prospective students, who are essential for building and shaping the face of an pioneering institution.

Workshops are led by Ashoka University faculty and designed to simulate the Ashoka classroom experience. They are both interactive and interdisciplinary, and attempt to challenge the way senior school students think about seemingly common issues. During these sessions students are encouraged to ask questions and think critically about the topic at hand.
Many of our workshops are scheduled in major cities so that students from multiple schools can attend.
