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.  Sessions are offered on Saturdays beginning in September at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. (we are unable to offer Saturday campus visits during the summer).

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, one night only)
  • meet with a coach
  • tour the School of Music (available with the 9 and 1 sessions only)

Registration closes five days in advance of the visit day. You are still welcome to visit campus! We accept walk-ins for all information sessions and campus tours.

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.

Group Visits

Group visits are offered from late September through April each year. If you are a group wanting to visit campus, please call Stephanie Knottingham (253.879.3989) at least two weeks in advance. Group tours are offered Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. with an information session at 10 a.m. We can accommodate groups of up to 50 students and we require a chaperone for every 10 students. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide meal tickets to groups. 

The Office of Admission is open year-round Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. During exam periods and university holidays, these schedules may be altered. For more specific closure information, please consult the Academic Calendar.
