Visits & Events

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

The full campus visit experience includes a 30-minute information session, 30-minute student panel, and an hour-long student-led tour.

An admission counselor will discuss academic programs, the application process, and financial aid. Our student ambassador panel will share perspectives about undergraduate life.

Information Sessions and Campus Tours

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

If you are in the area but unable to visit during one of our scheduled program times, or if you visit at a time when class isn't in session, you can still experience Santa Clara University via our mobile self-guided tour. Download the SCU app here!
