Admitted Student Campus Tours

    Join Us for 60-Minute Outdoor Campus Tours

    Take a tour of Western's beautiful campus! Let our WWU student tour guides lead you and a small group through Western's tree-lined paths. They will give you the inside scoop on everything Western and answer your questions as you explore. Please note, for the safety of our guests and campus community, tours will take place outdoors only.

    Tour dates will be made available approximately one month in advance; check back early next month for additional opportunities.

    COVID-19 Precautions and Requirements

    We will continue to host guests on campus as long as both Whatcom County and university health and safety guidelines allow. If these guidelines change, or it is no longer safe to host guests on campus, we may have to cancel your scheduled tour. In the event we need to cancel your visit, we will provide at least 48 hours’ notice. We sincerely appreciate your patience as we prioritize the health and safety of guests and our campus community.

    For the safety of our guests and campus community, all tours must comply with the following:

    1. Each registered student is limited to 2 additional guests. Tour groups will be limited to 3 families/groups per tour guide.
    2. Face coverings are required to be worn by everyone in your party and by our campus tour guide. If you forget your face covering, we will have disposable masks available for use. Face coverings should cover both your nose and mouth. Face coverings should be worn for the entirety of the tour. Unfortunately, tour guides will not be able to lead the tour if any guest is not wearing a mask.
    3. For the safety of our campus community, we will not be entering residence halls or any other buildings during the tour. If you choose to walk around on your own after the tour, please note that all buildings are closed to the public.
    4. Public restrooms will be available for use during the tour. We strongly encourage abiding by public health guidelines, including washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer.
    5. Everyone visiting campus is required to perform an online COVID-19 symptom assessment on the morning of their visit to campus. We will provide a link to the assessment in the confirmation email you receive after registering for a campus tour. We will send it again in an email (and text message if you opted in) the morning of your visit. Please note that each member of your party needs to complete this survey. If you or any of your guests do not feel well, or if you have been in contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19, please reschedule your visit to campus.   
    6. We ask that you remain physically distant from the tour guide and guests outside of your party throughout the entirety of the tour (at least 6 feet of distance as per CDC guidelines).
    7. The Admissions Office is still closed to the public, so Admissions Counselors are currently unable to meet with any guests in person. We strongly encourage registering for a virtual appointment.
