Office of Undergraduate Admissions Campus Visits

    Welcome to Northern Illinois University! We are excited you are interested in visiting our campus and learning more about what it means to be a Huskie. Campus visits are offered at select times Tuesday through Saturday. Please select the date and time that works best for you and your guests. A 48-hour business day notice is required for all reservations. At this time, we are unable to accommodate unscheduled campus visitors.

    What to expect during your campus visit:
    • Welcome with NIU Undergraduate Admissions (20-minutes)
    • Walking tour of campus with a current NIU student (1-hour)
    The campus walking tour will include entry into the Holmes Student Center, Altgeld Hall, and an academic classroom. Please note, Saturday visits have limited access to NIU facilities. We are unable to provide in-person appointments with academic programs and campus resources.

    1/11/2022 Update: Due to new COVID-19 mitigation guidelines set forth by NIU, at this time, we are unable to provide tours of residence halls. 


    Campus visit experiences are subject to change due to new mitigation guidelines set forth by NIU in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
