Visiting Illinois State

Come for a visit, check out the campus, and see why life here is right for you. Eat lunch in the student center. Soak in the atmosphere on the Quad. This is your chance to see why Illinois State is a place where you want to live and learn.

Open Houses

Open Houses, held several times throughout the year, are probably the best way for you to learn and see more of Illinois State. Take a campus tour, visit a residence hall, talk with our students, hear about the application and admission process, learn about the majors we offer, talk with various campus representatives, and more.

Daily Campus Visits

Daily Campus Visits are offered most weekdays, Monday through Friday throughout the year, and on scheduled Saturdays from September through April. This two-hour group session includes a presentation by an admissions counselor, a student-led walking tour of campus, and typically a residence hall tour.

Transfer Student Visits

Transfer Student Visits are designed specifically for students interested in transferring from a two-year community college or a four-year college.

Group Visits

Group visits are a great opportunity to introduce your group of high school or community college students to Illinois State University.

Residence Hall Tours

During the summer, residence hall tours are only available by registering for an Open House or Daily Campus Visit. Open Houses include a tour of East Campus (Hewett and Manchester Halls) and West Campus (Haynie, Wilkins, and Wright Halls). Daily Campus Visits include a tour of East Campus. Additionally, a show room is available in the Community Center of the new Cardinal Court student apartment complex, which houses primarily sophomore students.

Additional residence hall tours resume on August 17, 2015. For more information about living on campus, visit Housing.IllinoisState.edu.
