Freshman Visits

See DePaul for Yourself

Walk among skyscrapers, hop on the 'L' and swing into a coffee shop that could become your go-to spot in the city. Your visit to DePaul is more than just a visit to campus — it's a visit to Chicago. And while you're on campus, you'll get an inside look at life at DePaul.

Schedule a visit Take an online tour

Maybe you've already visited five or more schools, or maybe DePaul is your first. Either way, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
  1. Make the visit your own. You might be with your friends or parents, but this is about you. Come to campus ready to explore (and bring your walking shoes).
  2. Don't rush it. Your visit doesn't start and end with the information session and tour. Go out and explore the campus, popular hangouts and neighborhoods without the tour guide — this is when you'll really get a feel for DePaul.
  3. Bring your questions. There's only so much information you can get online. Ask your tour guide and admission rep questions.
