We are excited to offer in-person visits and virtual visit opportunities  (which include a virtual tour and one-one-one counselor meeting), academic sessions, and virtual events. We know experiencing campus, whether it’s in-person or virtually, is one of the most important things you can do in your college search and look forward to meeting you soon.


Immediately after entering campus, I could feel the close-knit community embodied through the surrounding greenery and towering evergreens scattered throughout the campus... PLU's campus feels like home.

In-person visits require an RSVP at least 2 days in advance and are limited to 1 student and up to 3 guests from the same household per tour time with the exception of Admitted Student Tour Days and Saturday Campus Tours where two groups following the same guidelines stated above are able to attend the same tour. We cannot accommodate walk-in requests.

A Campus Visit includes:

  • A campus tour led by a current student
  • A one-on-one meeting with an Admission Counselor

While on campus we enforce strict mask-wearing, proper physical distancing, and the buildings you enter are limited (for example, you will not see inside a residence hall). If a tour time is not available on a day you are in our area, you are always welcome to walk campus on your own using our self-guided tour.

We also offer an interactive transfer guide any student may use to see what classes have transferred to PLU in the past from various colleges.
