Visits & Events

The best way to get to know Santa Clara University is to visit campus and see it for yourself.

Book Your Visit

Make your reservation using our visit calendar. Online registration for any given day will remain open until we reach our capacity; otherwise, online registration will close the day prior to the tour date. For same-day drop-in visits please call us at 408-554-4700 to check availability.

Group Tours

Campus tours are offered Monday through Friday and most Saturdays during the academic year. We also have group tour options.


We encourage & welcome high school and/or college counselors, as well as independent education consultants to our campus. Please check the space available on your anticipated visit day before registering separately. High school/college counselors and independent education consultants are asked to register here!


Santa Clara does not conduct interviews as a formal part of the admission process. During your visit you may request to speak to an admission counselor to ask questions in confidence or to address any topics not covered in our information session and tour. Ultimately, we want you to leave SCU with all your questions answered.

Class Visits

Class visits are not available to prospective students. Students can sign up for a class visit once they are accepted to Santa Clara by registering for ShadowSCU.

Specialty Tours

Beyond the main campus tour, some departments and schools offer specialty tours of their facilities. Please contact the school or department directly for more information.
