Visit UP

Visit year-round!

Monday through Friday, we offer daily information sessions and campus tours. Times for both information sessions and campus tours can be found in the registration form and may vary depending on the time of year and type of visit you choose. We will personalize your visit based on whether you are a freshman or transfer student.

To ensure you get the most out of of your time on The Bluff, please schedule your visit at least 2-3 weeks in advance. Drop-in's are welcome but our schedule is subject to change (especially in summer or during school breaks.) To register, please see the visit options below.

When you visit campus, please allow yourself additional time to navigate the construction of our brand new Dundon-Berchtold academic building. Parking and campus traffic will be slightly impacted from May 14th through August 20th. Traffic entering campus through the main drive off Willamette Blvd. will be required to stop and turn right by the Pilot House and proceed to the main lot. All buses visiting campus will be directed to enter via Portsmouth Ave. Please reference this map for further parking instructions. 

Please note: Office of Admissions is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
