Visit Union

Students gather outside near the Nott Memorial

Although we've had to cancel on-campus tours, information sessions and interviews through June 15, 2020, there are many ways to connect with us virtually!

Currently we're evaluating (and updating/canceling) on-campus visits in two week increments. Soon we will also have a Guidebook tour available, suitable for taking a look at the Union campus exteriors.

Admitted Student Programs

We're excited to welcome our new admitted students to take a closer look at life at Union. We invite you and your family to view the many virtual experiences we've created for you at union.edu/makeunionyours.

Prospective Student PROGRAMS

Experience Union from the comfort of your home with these virtual opportunities:

Virtual Open House

Offered Thursdays at 7:00 pm eastern time, each Open House program will feature an introduction from Admissions, an overview of academic life from a faculty member and class dean, and a panel discussion with current students. At 8:00 pm, you have the option to stay in the session for a virtual tour of Union's beautiful campus with one of our student guides.

Virtual Information Session

Every weekday at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm eastern time, an admissions dean will give an overview of the College and answer your questions.

Virtual Tour

Tour our campus virtually through photos and 360° views at stops that include academic buildings, residence halls, our unique Minerva Houses, the Nott Memorial (a national historic landmark) and more.

You can also check out this tour video, with Lauren Smith '20 highlighting a few of the "must see" stops around campus.

Looking for a guided tour experience? On Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings, student tour guides offer live narrated versions of the virtual tour while answering questions and sharing their Union stories.
