Visiting Howard University provides students with an opportunity to immerse themselves in the Howard Experience and to interact with our students, faculty and staff. Our campus visit program is designed to provide our guests with information about our wide range of academic programs, the admission process, financial aid, and student life on campus. Visitors will attend an information session led by an Admission Officer or a Student Ambassador, followed by a walking tour of the University’s main campus. The information session and campus tour last approximately two hours.

Family/Individual Tour

Campus visits are available Monday through Friday at select times throughout the day. Families and individuals interested in scheduling a campus visit can do so at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., and 2 p.m. 

Please note: In light of the global Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) concerns and the recent impacts of the public health situation on the Washington, D.C. area, Howard University has postponed all campus tours until further notice.

Group Tour

For groups of 10 or more individuals, please see our Group Visit page for more detailed information (including appointment scheduling). 

PLEASE NOTE: Campus tours and visits are suspended on the weekends, federal holidays, and for university closings. In addition, tours for the fall semester are scheduled beginning the week after Labor Day (September through November). In December, tours will be unavailable through mid-January. In the spring, tours are scheduled through April. 

Virtual Information Session

Our webinar sessions allow prospective students to connect with us virtually to learn more about our admission process, and the exciting opportunities Howard University has to offer. These sessions are geared towards rising high school juniors and seniors.
