Experience is the best teacher.

We offer campus visit programs to fit your schedule. Review the options below, then schedule your visit online.

General information session

Have questions about the University of Dayton — or just want to learn more? Our helpful admission staff will share everything you need to know, and you'll also tour campus. If you select this option, plan to spend approximately two hours on campus, which includes a half-hour information session and a one-hour campus tour.

To schedule your visit, call our Campus Visit Coordinator at 800-UD PRIDE (800-837-7433) or submit your request online.

If you'd like to schedule an appointment with a faculty member, please contact the academic department (.pdf) directly. If you'd like to schedule an appointment with a career adviser, please contact career services directly.

Campus Tours

Explore the places you'll eat, sleep, learn and have fun for the next four years. A one-hour campus tour is scheduled as part of the information session.

Art and Design Days

Interested in art and design? During Art and Design Days, you can tour campus; learn about admission and financial aid; meet your future professors; visit our brand-new art and design studios, photography labs and art gallery; and view student and faculty work. Art and Design Days will be held July 18, July 25, Aug. 1 and Aug. 8. 

To reserve your space, schedule a campus visit for any of the days listed above. Then, schedule a personalized tour of the Department of Art and Design by contacting Judith Huacuja, department chair, at 937-229-3238 or

Saturday Visits

Are your weekdays too busy to make it to campus? Information sessions and campus tours are offered on select Saturday mornings during the academic year.

Our Saturday visits for the spring 2014 semester have passed. Our Saturday visit dates for the fall 2014 semester will be posted in August.

Organized Group Visits

For chaperoned groups (10 or more students) visiting campus, we offer tours and information sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. These group visits are limited to current high school students.

The admission and financial aid office will accommodate as many of your requests as possible; however, some dates are not available due to campus events (such as exams, fall break, spring break, etc.). We are unable to provide meal vouchers, overnight accommodations or transportation to campus as part of a group visit.

To schedule, please call the campus visit coordinator directly at 937-229-4463.

Open House

On select Sunday mornings in the fall semester, you can attend an Open House and discover why more than 7,400 students call the University of Dayton their home-away-from-home. Our fall 2013 Open Houses have passed, and our fall 2014 dates will be posted in August.
