Plan Your Visit

Start your journey by planning your visit.

A visit to campus is the best way for you to experience Northwestern.

The Segal Visitors Center (1841 Sheridan Road, Evanston, Illinois) is open on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. year-round. September through April, the Visitors Center is also open select Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 

Plan your visit

We look forward to welcoming you to campus and answering your questions about living and learning here. While you're here, explore any or all of the following options: 

  • Information sessions & campus tours \ Most visitors start their visit with this option, which includes an overview of the University by an admissions counselor and a student-led tour of campus. 
  • School-specific sessions \ Advisers from our six undergraduate schools host weekly information sessions to help you learn about what makes each school distinct. 
  • Attend a class \ Prospective students can choose from 100+ courses to sample Northwestern's classroom culture. 
  • Purple preview days \ Current high school seniors can shadow a current Northwestern student on select weekdays during the academic year. 

Coming with a group? Groups of 10 or more high school students can view availability and submit a request to schedule a large group visit.
