Bring your family — and learn more about our family — at an Open House. Meet students, faculty and administrators, and discover why more than 7,400 students call the University of Dayton their home-away-from-home.

Join us on Sept. 14, Oct. 5 or Nov. 9, 2014.

Schedule of Events

During the Open House, you can learn about admission and financial aid, attend the academic fair, gain tips for choosing a major, discover the benefits of the Honors Program, tour campus, interact with a student panel and more.

Open House events begin at noon, and registration starts at 11:30 a.m. in the John F. Kennedy Student Union. A detailed schedule will be posted on the website in late August. 

At 11 a.m., we will be offering an early bird campus tour (meet in the Kennedy Union lobby) and an early bird admission and financial aid session (meet in Albert Emanuel Hall). 

A variety of academic programs are offered during the Open House.
