SIU Campus Visit Tour

As the challenges associated with COVID-19 evolve, we want to keep you informed of the efforts SIU is taking to protect the health and welfare of our campus community and guests. As part of the ongoing efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, SIU has suspended in-person instruction and on-campus learning. Additionally, we have suspended all University-sponsored events with 10 or more attendees.

SIU’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions remains dedicated to supporting students through the admission process. Currently, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions has suspended on-campus tours and visit programs; however, our staff is available and ready to answer questions. Email us at admissions@siu.edu or email one of our Admissions Coordinators directly.

Check back for updated information about hours and office availability for the Office of Undergraduate Admissions soon.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. For more information about the proactive precautions SIU is taking amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, visit shc.siu.edu/coronavirus/.


Daily visits and tours are offered Monday through Friday throughout the year.  A typical visit includes a welcome to campus, meeting with Admissions and tour of campus and residence hall. You may also request an appointment with a representative in your major and enjoy lunch in the dining halls at a reduced rate.

We appreciate 48 hours notice for any campus visit and at least one week if you would like to meet with a representative in your major of interest. We will make every effort to schedule your requests; however, we cannot guarantee a meeting with departments made later than two days prior to a visit.
