Group Visits for High Schools and Organizations

Thank you for your interest in visiting Elmhurst University. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not currently hosting group visits. Please contact us to learn more.

We hope to soon be able to host visits by high schools, community-based organizations and alumni partners who are interested in learning about the admission process and academic opportunities at the University. We will share more information about that at the appropriate time.

If you would like to plan for a future visit when it is safe to do so, below are our previous guidelines that were in effect before the pandemic.

Group Visits

We can accommodate groups up to 40 people (including chaperones), and ask that you provide one chaperone for every 10 students. The group visit experience lasts approximately two hours, beginning at 9:45 a.m. to noon.

Please complete a group visit request form at least two to three weeks prior to your visit, and our group visit coordinator will follow up with you within three business days to confirm your visit date and schedule.

Important Information

We offer group visits on select Tuesdays and Thursdays each Fall and Spring Term. We also limit organizations to one visit per semester. If your group has been confirmed and your plans change, we ask that you contact our Group Visit Coordinator Francesca Garza at (630) 617-5789 or

How Do We Get to Elmhurst University and Where Can We Park?

We ask that you park in the parking lot by the Mill Theatre (MT on the map) or by the Brune Tennis Courts (west of the Mill Theatre) and then report to the Frick Center fireplace, where your host will be awaiting your arrival.

What Happens When We Arrive?

The first thing to expect is to see our staff waiting for you with a smile! Typically, we will give your group information about Elmhurst University, an admission presentation and a campus tour. If you have special accommodations or would like to have specific departments speak to your group, please inform us in the comments section of the group visit request form.
