Schedule Your UWS Community Tour

A UWS community tour is a great way to experience university life and see firsthand what awaits you at UWS. Visits are available Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, except during holidays or other special circumstances.

A tour will include an appointment with your admissions advisor, a meeting with our financial aid team, a campus led tour from a student ambassador and the opportunity to observe one or two classes. Your family is welcome to join you during your visit.

Please schedule your visit by completing the online form to the left (complete one form for each student attending the visit). We ask that you submit your request at least two weeks in advance for the best experience possible. After your request is processed, a confirmation including a detailed schedule, campus map and parking information, will be emailed to the address on file.

Please contact our office directly if you are a person with a disability and desire assistance.

Specific questions or requests can be handled by calling or emailing: [email protected]  |  503-251-5734

Tour Activities

  • Portland, Oregon can bring variable weather. We encourage visitors to check the forecast prior to visiting.
  • During extreme weather conditions, please visit the UWS homepage to ensure the campus is open. In the event that campus is closed, all campus tours and activities will be cancelled.

A tour will include a visit to our anatomical science building and allow prospective students to preview the anatomy lab. Because this part of the tour may include viewing cadavers or other sensitive materials, it is only available to students 16 years and older. If you have concerns about this, please let the admissions coordinator and your tour guide know in advance.
