Learn about how the University is planning a fully in-person semester this fall!

From virtual sessions to campus tours, there are so many ways for you to discover what makes Syracuse University so special. We can’t wait to connect with you to celebrate your acceptance!

Campus Tours

Campus tours are available Monday-Friday and will be limited to admitted students and two family members from the same household. Led by a student ambassador from our University 100, the tour will provide you insight into academics and what it’s like to be a student on campus. Space is limited and advance registration is required. Hoping to get an inside look at Slocum Hall, where the School of Architecture is located? Check out our student-produced video below!
