Visit Puget Sound

The best way to get a true sense of the Puget Sound experience is by visiting. 

The cornerstone of every Puget Sound visit is a two-hour session that includes both an information session led by an admission counselor and a student-led campus tour. These sessions are offered each weekday at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1 p.m., with the exception of university holidays.

In addition to the two-hour session, the following activities are available when classes are in session (check the visit scheduling calendar for availability):

  • interview with an admission representative (seniors and transfer students only)
  • sit in on a class
  • meet with a professor (seniors and transfers only)
  • overnight with a current student (seniors only, Monday through Thursday)
  • meet with a coach
  • tour the School of Music (available with the 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. sessions)

Want to visit on Saturdays? Sessions are offered on select Saturdays beginning in September at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Saturday sessions include a student-led tour and information session. Saturday interviews are limited, please call the Office of Admission at 253.879.3211 to request a Saturday interview.  

Want to visit in the next five days? No problem! Just come to campus (No need to register!) and visit the Office of Admission located in Jones Hall. If you have questions call us at 253.879.3211.

Please note information sessions and tours are not offered on November 11, November 23, and December 19 to January 3. Due to finals, no 11 a.m. sessions are offered during the week of December 12.

Please plan on arriving at least 15 minutes prior to the start of your session in order to ensure that you receive a complete campus visit experience.
