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!
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 new Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons, our Student 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.
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're a prospective transfer student, join us for Transfer Fridays! The event features an information session about the transfer admissions process at 12:15 p.m., followed by an optional campus tour at 1 p.m. Bring your questions and find out why Seattle University has the largest transfer population in Washington state.

Have more time? Class Visits and Faculty Meetings
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. Our Redhawk Ambassador program puts you in touch with current SU students who personally coordinate the details of your visit and make your campus arrangements.
To schedule an extended visit between October and May, please click here to select a date. Be sure to click "Confirm" on the last page after verifying your guest count. Please note that, in order to accommodate visitors, extended visit requests must be made two weeks prior to the date of your visit. Correspondence regarding your visit will be sent via email so please check your email account regularly.
Extended visits cannot be scheduled during the summer as we are not able to offer faculty meetings or class visits.
Visiting with a group
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions welcomes visiting groups to campus. Group visits are designed specifically for high school students and prospective transfer students, and typically consist of a student-led campus tour. If requested, an information session with an admissions counselor can also be arranged. Due to limited availability of tour guides and classroom space, we cannot accommodate groups with more than 40 people. We welcome group visits Monday through Friday, mid-November through August. To arrange a group visit, please review our group visit policies, and then complete the Group Visit Request Form. Please note that we require at least three weeks' notice to organize your visit.
Nearby points of interest
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.
