Daily Visits and Campus Tours

Experiencing our campus firsthand is a great way to help you decide if Illinois Tech could be your future university. The Office of Undergraduate Admission offers daily information sessions, campus tours, admission counselor appointments every Monday - Friday throughout the year, as well as select weekends and holidays. Prospective students may also participate in our Overnight Hawk Program and stay with a student host overnight on campus.

Information Sessions, Campus Tours and Counselor Appointments

Take advantage of one of our daily visits, Monday-Friday, and choose the activities that best fit your needs.

Admission Counselor Appointments are designed to give you an opportunity to talk with an admission counselor individually about the application process and general Illinois Tech questions. These are not interviews and are not required as part of the admissions process, although they may be extremely beneficial to you in the search process to learn more about the university and have your detailed questions answered.

Campus Tours are led by our student ambassadors to show you around campus and include a residence hall, campus center, classroom overview, and the library. The walking tours last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Lunch with current students for a free bite in our all-you-can-eat on-campus dining hall The Commons. Lunch is offered from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and students are available throughout that time to join you for lunch.

Sit in on a class, talk to a professor, or meet with an athletic coach. These extra activities require some advance notice and may not be available every day, but we will do our best to accommodate all requests.

Special Visits and Events 

Visiting campus on a weekday isn't always possible, so we want to give prospective students and families the chance to visit us outside of normal school and work hours. Additionally, the university sometimes hosts special events that are open to prospective students and their families!

Join the Office of Undergraduate Admission for a student-led campus tour and information session on select holidays and weekends, as well as select opportunities to attend special events (as noted):

Overnight Visits

Immerse yourself in the day to day life of an Illinois Tech student! During the spring and fall semester, you can stay overnight with a student host to learn what it's like to be a part of our community. You will experience living in one of our residence halls, eating in The Commons and meeting numerous current students. You can choose to go on a campus tour, speak with an admissions counselor, shadow a class or even meet with a professor. This option is only available to current high school seniors or transfer students.
