    The best way to learn about Worcester State University is to walk around our beautiful campus and talk with members of our vibrant community—students, professors, and admissions staff alike.   

  • Campus Tours
    Weekday Campus Tours
    You can take a student-guided campus tour during the summer, Monday through Thursday at 10 a.m.* and 1 p.m. and Fridays at 10 a.m.*

    Summer tours will begin on June 22 and run through August 21. We will be closed on Friday, July 3 in observance of the 4th of July.

    *10 a.m. visits will include an Information Session 
     
    Schedule your tour online or call the Admissions Office at 508-929-8040 for more information.
    Individual Student Appointments

    If you are a senior in high school or a potential transfer student, you can request a one-on-one meeting with our admissions staff. If you have questions that can’t be answered via email or over the phone, we’re more than happy to talk with you in person. If you bring your transcripts, we can determine if you’re an admissible candidate, prepare preliminary transfer credit evaluations, and offer academic advice.

    * Admissions counselors will be traveling frequently during the months of September and October so appointments will be offered on a limited basis. Please contact your counselor directly to determine their availability.

    Open Houses
    Open house is a perfect opportunity to meet with our faculty and staff. You also will have the chance to discuss the admissions process, financial aid, residence life, student services, campus activities, and academics. Full campus tours are included as part of every open house event. The 2015 open house dates and online registration will be available in late spring. 

    The program begins promptly at 9 a.m. and is approximately 3 hours long. Advanced registration is appreciated.
    Group Tours

    Are you a high-school counselor, teacher, or leader of a college-bound organization interested in bringing a group of high-school students to our campus? To better assist you with planning your visit, please read through our group-tour guidelines and complete our Group Tour Request Form. Please note that we have reached capacity and can no longer accommodate special group tour requests for the spring 2015 semester.

    General group-tour guidelines:

    • In order to plan the best visit possible and to secure a student tour guide, we ask that you submit your request 3 weeks in advance.
    • We can accommodate groups of up to 45 students; tours are geared toward high-school students.
    • Group tours are offered on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tours are not available on weekends or holidays when WSU is closed. (This includes Spring Break, March 16-20.)
    • Although we are not able to provide complementary lunch to all of our visitors, groups are welcome to have lunch on their own in our brand new dining facility in Sheehan Hall. Once your group tour has been confirmed, we will send you information on how to make lunch arrangements.

    If you have any questions, please contact Christopher Dooley at grouptours@worcester.edu or 508-929-8040.

    Please note that availability for group visits during the summer is limited.
