Campus Visits

Visit Saint Louis University

When you tour Saint Louis University, you’ll not only experience campus and connect with the Billiken community, you’ll be invited to imagine something more. To explore possibilities and discover your “why.”

We’d love to welcome you to campus for an in-person tour or visit event. Before you arrive on campus, please review SLU's COVID-prevention guidance.

Daily Admission Presentations and Campus Tours

As an introduction to Saint Louis University, join us for an on-campus admission presentation. This session with an admission representative covers academic programs, scholarships and financial aid, student support services, and the step-by-step application and admission process. The presentation is best suited for prospective students who have not yet been admitted to SLU. Daily offerings make it easy to fit an admission presentation and campus tour into your family's schedule. 

This presentation can be easily combined with a tour, where you will hear from current students about their favorite places on the Saint Louis University campus. Tours include many must-see spots, including a classroom, lab space, Busch Student Center, a dining center and more. 

Our daily tours are a great representation of what campus life looks like as a Billiken. Registration is open now for daily tours during the spring semester, and we will continue to add new dates in the coming weeks.
