Campus Tours

Campus Tours and Information Sessions

On a campus tour, our student guides will spend an hour sharing what it's like to live and learn in our distinct urban setting. You'll see classroom spaces, a residence hall room, our award-winning Chapel of St. Ignatius, the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons, our Student Center, the Connolly and Eisiminger Fitness Center, and dining facilities.

We offer campus tours year-round Monday through Friday at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. From October to June tours are also offered many Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. and noon. Most campus tours last about 90 minutes. 
 
Admissions Counselor information sessions are available February through October during weekdays at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. These 30 minute information sessions are designed to give you a brief overview of the university and our admissions and scholarship process. You can request an information session when you schedule your campus tour online below.

All Seattle University visitors are welcome to join a campus tour, though the information shared is focused on the undergraduate student experience.

 Visiting a college is crucial to making your final decisions on which university you will ultimately attend. Here are some helpful tips to make the most of your visit to Seattle University:

  • Eat on Campus - Our admissions office staff will happily provide each prospective student with a meal voucher so you can see why our campus dining service is rated so highly. Our student employees also love to recommend their favorite neighborhood lunch spots.
  • Read the school newspaper - Pick up a copy of The Spectator for a truly unique student perspective.
  • Talk to everyone and ask questions - Our students are more than happy to share their SU experience with you! Here are some questions we recommend you ask our tour guides:
    • What does it mean that Seattle University is a Jesuit university?
    • What is Quadstock?
    • Tell me more about your Outdoor Adventure and Recreation program.
    • What are your favorite places to hang out on and off campus?
    • What is the Core Curriculum? Do you had a favorite Core class?
    • I heard Seattle University has small class sizes; what has your classroom experience been like?
    • Someone explained that SU's campus is like "an oasis in the city." What does that mean?
    • Does it really rain all the time here? (spoiler alert: it doesn't!)
    • What will my professors expect of me academically?
    • What is your favorite aspect of attending Seattle University?
    • What is De-Stress with Dogs?
