SIU Students at campus visit

Open House

Open House programs are all about giving you the full Saluki experience. You can go on a campus tour, meet with people from Admissions, Financial Aid, and University Housing, sit in on info sessions; and browse our information fair with representatives from all academic departments and student support programs. Be part of our next open house experience.

Daily Visits

Monday through Friday visits are great for new and transfer students who are serious about attending Southern Illinois University. You’ll talk to an admissions counselor, take a campus and residence hall tour with a current student, and have an opportunity to meet with a representative in your academic area of interest. It is important to register well before the day you want to visit, since these appointments are scheduled based on your interests.

Transfer-specific sessions are also available on select dates.

Saturday Visits

Most of the campus is closed on weekends, but Undergraduate Admissions is open on a few select Saturdays. If you don’t mind the quiet, a Saturday is a great day to visit. Saturday visits typically include brunch with a student in a dining hall, a session with Undergraduate Admissions and a tour of campus, including a residence hall and the Recreation Center. 

Group Visits

Group Visits are available for school and community organizations. With advanced notice, we can plan a campus experience to meet the needs of the group. To schedule a group visit, or for more information, please contact our Group Visit Coordinator at 618/453-2957 or by email at groupvisit@siu.edu.
