Group Visits

We love showing our campus to student groups, and we can create a customized EWU experience for your group.

To coordinate a visit, just fill out the group visit form.

Campus Construction

Due to the Pence Union Building (PUB) redesign that is taking place on EWU's main campus, special guidelines have been introduced to ensure you have the best group visit possible:

  • Groups can include up to 55 participants.
  • You can choose from two group visit slots per day, one starting before noon and one starting after noon.
  • If multiple groups want to be on campus at the same time, the group that signed up first will receive the visit slot.
  • Exceptions to these guidelines may occur on a case by case basis depending on the availability of resources.

Scheduling your Visit

To assure your visit is tailored to your needs, you'll want to plan well in advance.

  • Schedule your overnight visits four weeks in advance.
  • Schedule your day visits at least three weeks in advance.
  • Group visits are available Monday through Friday.
  • Overnight visits are available Monday through Thursday for students in the 9th grade and above.

Your visit may include the following activities
