Visit Campus

Experience Xavier

Students say campus has a special kind of atmosphere. They feel welcome here from day one, like they’re part of a family. It’s a rare quality in a college, and you’ll have to experience it to believe it. We are proud to offer safe, in-person campus visit opportunities for prospective families. Each visit option includes a tour led by a current student (no more than 3 families per group) that goes inside our main campus buildings for a great insight into campus life.
