We would love to meet you! Your visit is a chance to explore the campus and city and meet staff, students, and faculty who can tell you more about Seattle University. You are welcome here whether you are stopping by or staying awhile; visiting with a group or on your own. We do our best to make you feel welcome! Here are some ways to make the most of the time you have here.
If time is short, you can take advantage of our standard visit. On a campus tour, our student guides will spend about an hour sharing what it's like to live and learn in our distinct urban setting. You'll have the chance to see classroom spaces, a residence hall room, our award-winning Chapel of St. Ignatius, the new Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons, our Student Center, and dining facilities. During the school year we offer campus tours daily, Monday through Friday at 10:00 a.m., noon and 2:00 p.m. From October to June tours are also offered many Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. and noon. Please check our online schedule below to see current availability. Information sessions are available February through October during weekdays at 11:30 a.m. These 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.

If you have the time to stay awhile, you can live as a Redhawk for a day! In an extended visit, you’ll meet with faculty one-on-one, sit in on classes, take a guided tour, and meet with an admissions counselor. You’ll learn about Seattle University from the people who know what it’s like—current students. Our Redhawk Ambassador program puts you in touch with current SU students who personally coordinate the details of your visit, make your campus arrangements, and show you around.
To schedule an extended visit between October and May, please click here to complete the online form at least two weeks prior to the date you'd like to visit. Correspondence regarding your visit will be sent via email so please check your email account regularly.
Please note extended visits cannot be requested during the summer as we are not able to offer faculty meetings or class visits.
Group visits are designed for high-school age groups ranging from 5 to 40 students. We welcome group visits on Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Friday; please fill out the online form below to request a day and time. To request a group visit, please complete the online form. Please allow two weeks’ notice for us to properly accommodate your request.
While there’s plenty to see and do on campus, take time to explore Seattle too. It’s easy to do: Seattle University is located in an urban neighborhood, a few blocks from downtown and some of the coolest neighborhoods in Seattle. Check out the great food in the International District, the scene on Broadway Avenue in Capitol Hill, and historic Pioneer Square, all an easy walk from Seattle University. Use the interactive map below for ideas of places to stay, places to eat, and places to get some of our world famous Seattle coffee.
