Middle School Viking Group Visits

    We are excited to host you and your students on campus!

    Middle school (8th grade) and Compass 2 Campus partnered school groups are welcome to arrange a group visit.

    Groups are limited to 100 students per visit. Groups that have fewer than 15 participants are asked to attend our regular Campus Tours (offered most weekdays and select Saturdays) or Discovery Days programs.
     

    Student Groups 7th Grade and Lower

    Student groups younger than 8th grade are encouraged to take advantage of our self-guided campus visit options. To request self-guided visit materials, such as our Self-Guided Tour Booklet, "What Kind of Smart Are You?" Worksheet, and a Western Scavenger Hunt, please email groupvisit@wwu.edu at least two weeks in advance.

    Please note that we cannot offer discounted meal tickets/lunch for student groups younger than 8th grade, but with advanced notice we can try to arrange space on campus where your group can eat lunch.

    Changes

    We cannot guarantee that schedule changes made within one week of your visit date will be fulfilled. This includes any day-of alterations. Although we will try to accommodate any unforeseen circumstances that may affect your group visit (e.g. traffic), it isn't always possible to honor changes in the agenda. Your understanding is appreciated!

    Cancellations

    Since space is limited, we ask that you please notify us at least 72 hours in advance if your group must cancel.
