A part of the university's Enrollment Management & Services division, the Visitor Center is staffed by student ambassadors eager to provide assistance with:

  • directions to locations on campus

  • information about parking on campus

  • academic & campus life brochures

  • assistance in contacting someone on campus

  • updates on university happenings

  • a student's perspective on campus life

Daily information sessions for prospective undergraduate students are held at the Visitor Center. To reserve a seat, please visit the Undergraduate Admissions website, register for a WolfPaw account, and select available dates for both information sessions and campus tours.

The Visitor Center is open to the public Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (excluding university holidays) and is located at 1210 Varsity Drive near the intersection of Western Boulevard and Gorman Street, adjacent to McKimmon Conference Center.  Free parking is available in designated visitor spaces in front of our building.
