In-person visits

We will open campus for visits as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, here are some of the visit opportunities you can look forward to when we resume in-person visits!

Good news

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is excited to eventually reopen our campus to visitors and future Falcons. We have missed you, and we can’t wait to see you!

We are planning to reopen for limited, appointment-only, in-person visits once the city of Seattle and King County deems it safe to do so. Visits will look a little different, but the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and students has been, and will continue to be, our highest priority.

Here are some of the ways we are planning to make your visit experience safe:

  • Persons who are sick will not be allowed to come to campus.
  • Staff, students, and guests are required to complete self-attestation health forms prior to coming to campus.
  • All staff, students, and guests are required to wear a face mask at all times during campus visits, while indoors and outdoors, unless a medical exception applies.
  • Your visit will consist of a one-hour joint walking tour and a personal appointment with an admissions counselor. All visits will be conducted outdoors with limited access inside buildings.
  • Contactless check-in will be conducted over the phone upon arrival to campus. Admissions hosts will meet guests at their vehicle once guests have completed remote check-in. Visits will be limited to one student and their guests per appointment time slot. Students are limited to no more than three accompanying guests in order to keep appointment group sizes small.
  • During visits, admissions hosts will maintain six feet of distance from guests wherever possible.
  • Campus visits will be by appointment only, in order to prevent large groups from congregating in the admissions lobby area.
  • All SPU staff, students, and campus visitors are required to maintain good hygiene and are encouraged to wash/sanitize hands frequently.

Stay connected with us by reviewing our website and regular communications for updates. We can’t wait to see you soon!

Campus tours

Learn about SPU while taking a walking tour of campus led by a current SPU student! View a residence hall, classrooms, library, dining hall, Student Union Building, athletics complex, and more. This tour is designed to showcase what it's like to study at SPU and answer questions.

Individual visits

Design-your-own visit! When you attend an individual visit, you can choose a campus tour and/or an appointment with your admissions counselor. During the school year, you can request additional options to customize your visit.

Transfer Open House

Get all your questions about the SPU transfer experience answered. Learn about admissions and financial aid, and interact with current transfer students.

Falcon Friday

Live like a Falcon for a day! Visit classes, eat in our dining hall, take a tour, learn about the admissions process, get to know your future classmates, and more. You can also take a closer look at some of our academic programs and meet professors. 2020-2021 dates coming soon!
