All Seattle University visitors are welcome to join a campus tour, though the information shared is focused on the undergraduate student experience.
At the beginning of the campus visit, information sessions will take place in the Seattle University Admissions and Alumni Building (where the campus tour begins/ends). These information sessions are designed to give you a brief overview of the university, as well as our admissions and scholarship process.
Due to the availability of our Admissions Counselors, we are unable to offer information sessions in September, November, December, January, and May. The campus visit will only consist of a campus tour during these specific months.
We offer campus visits year-round Monday through Friday, starting at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
From October to June, campus visits are also offered most Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. and noon.
In June, July and August we will have our regularly scheduled tours Monday through Friday at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., but please note that our Friday afternoon tours will begin at 1:00 p.m.
