Our regularly scheduled campus tours are awesome, but if you would like to plan your own visit, we can make that happen! Let us help you plan a visit to campus based on your specific interests. You will experience firsthand our welcoming faculty, inclusive campus community and discover that your future is our focus at NIU!
A few things to note before requesting your personalized visit:
Personalized visits are offered Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Personalized visits are a self-guided experience. Please make sure you are on-time and at the correct location of each appointment.
In compliance with NCAA rules, please contact NIU Athletics staff to coordinate a visit with a sports program.
At least 10 days advance notice is required for a personalized visit. We will not be able to accommodate any requests that fall outside of this timeframe.
Personalized visits do not replace orientation.
We are unable to schedule personalized visits during university closures, admissions event days and winter break. Other dates are at the discretion of the Office of Admissions.
At our Open House, you'll spend the day exploring NIU through a program customized for you. Choose an academic track and learn more about one of our six undergraduate colleges. Tour different programs and facilities, and learn more about financial aid, our honors program and our cultural resource centers.
