In-Person Campus Visits

Daily Campus Visits

Campus visits provide an opportunity for prospective students to explore our beautiful campus and connect with our community. 

In-person campus visits are offered Monday through Friday and some Saturdays. Your visit will include a 30-minute information session, followed by a 75-minute student-led campus tour. Our information session will provide an overview of WashU, our programs as well as the admission and financial assistance process.

Additional on-campus academic division sessions and/or tours offered on Mondays and Fridays in June and early August. They will not be offered the month of July due to special visit days.

Optional in-person interviews for visiting students who are planning to apply as first-year students for the fall of 2024 available from May 30 through August 16 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Interviews will be available again after August 28. Interviews last approximately 15-20 minutes and there are a limited number available.

Please note, campus visits from August 21-25 will include an information session and a self-guided tour.
