Admitted Student Welcome
You and your family are invited to Destination Puget Sound: Admitted Student Welcome! This is your opportunity to attend a class, meet current students and parents, spend the night in a residence hall (select dates only), tour campus, and see all that Puget Sound has to offer.
We offer six different Destination Puget Sound dates. Please select a date to register:
* Option for overnight stay the day before.
^ Students interested in sitting in on a class should register for a Friday event; Saturday guests can meet faculty representatives from different departments in an academic resource fair.
Events begin at 8 a.m. (excluding overnight guests, who will check in the day before) and end no later than 3 p.m.
If those dates don't work for you, schedule an information session and campus tour at your convenience!
Students registered for March 31, April 6, or April 13 have the option to get the full Puget Sound experience by spending the night before on campus with a current student host.
Students planning to stay overnight should arrive on campus the day before the event (March 30, April 5, or April 12) between 4 to 5 p.m. to participate in the overnight portion. On-campus accommodations are for admitted students only — family members can find a list of nearby accommodations here. We’ll provide admitted students with dinner, evening activities, and pair them with a current Puget Sound student host.
Students staying overnight and families will reconnect the next morning for Destination: Puget Sound.
Admitted student families are welcome to attend Destination: Puget Sound!
During overnight events, we will be hosting a special parent reception in the evening where you can meet faculty, staff, and current students. Refreshments will be served!
University of Puget Sound is located at 1500 North Warner in Tacoma, Washington, approximately 30 miles south of Seattle and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Directions to campus and information on nearby accommodations can be found here.
Please note that events are subject to change. Your schedule will be personalized and will look different.
