Visit campus and see for yourself how our students live greater everyday.
Visiting campus is the best way to experience life on Hawk Hill. When you set foot on our campus and walk the halls of our academic buildings, you will find yourself quickly enveloped by our school spirit. You will quickly learn about SJU's dedication to service, and passion for learning that our University represents. Whether you choose to visit at an open house, a weekday guided tour, or another event, we can't wait to greet you. Choose the visit that best fits your schedule and be sure to tag your photos or tweets with #VISITSJU to share your favorite moments.
Join in the Jesuit mission of giving back and bring a canned good when you visit. All donations collected go to Philabundance, a local non-profit.

Admission Presentation & Campus Tour
Visit and discover SJU through a presentation by an admissions counselor and a guided campus tour. Visit any weekday and on select Saturdays. For all dates and times:
Schools or organizations wishing to bring groups of 10 or more high school aged students are welcome to schedule a visit on a Tuesday or Thursday. The visits are 90 minutes, take place at 11:30 AM-1:00 PM, and will consist of a Discover SJU presentation and a campus tour. We ask that requests are made at least three weeks in advance of your planned visit day.
Ask – A – Counselor
Available Monday through Friday upon request. While we do not require an interview as part of our admissions process, these "one-on-one" appointments are available should you have detailed questions about the admissions process that would not typically be addressed in a presentation. Please call 610-660-1300 or 1-888- BE-A-HAWK for an appointment.
Transfer Information Sessions
Transfer information sessions are small question and answer sessions designed for students transferring from another college or university. You and your family are encouraged to visit to meet with an admissions counselor to discuss transferring credits, choosing a major, and learning more about life on Hawk Hill. Choose from multiple dates to visit. (Transfer students are also welcome to attend an SJU View Open House event)
We love having high school counselors, independent counselors, and community-based organization counselors that work with college bound students on campus. Visit our Counselor Page to find information about events specifically for you!
