Campus Tours

COVID safety measures are currently in place to protect Seattle University community members and campus visitors.

While on campus, community members and visitors are asked to wear masks at all times and to maintain physical distance from those not in your party when you are able to.

Please note, many campus buildings are closed due to ongoing COVID-19 safety precautions.

Prior to arriving, anyone choosing to visit the Seattle University campus must also complete the Safe Start Health Check.

Making the most of your visit

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
    Grab a bite to eat at one of our on-campus eateries! Our student employees also love to recommend their favorite neighborhood lunch spots.
