St. Lawrence University has many programs which allow us to connect to students so we get to know them prior to reviewing their application and for them to get to know our campus community. We welcome visitors to campus Monday through Friday and on most Saturdays.
On campus, the Admissions and Financial Aid office is located in historic Payson Hall on Park Street (building 27 on our campus map). Parking for our guests is located across the street from Payson (near our Brewer Bookstore - building 74) where we have reserved parking for our visitors. When you arrive you will receive a special parking permit to display in your vehicle.
Our programs include:
Visit campus to include a personal interview with one of our staff and a campus tour led by our student ambassadors. They would love to share with you their experiences and adventures!
We have organized visit days in the fall and spring, listen to students and faculty and spend some time with Dean Rickey.
For students who have been admitted to the Class of 2020, a chance to see even more of what you will experience as a St. Lawrence student.

Are you unable to visit campus but want as much information as possible on our community? Take our online tours to help you visualize some important areas around campus that as a student, you will be visiting on a daily basis! Also use them to do research on where you might want to visit when you visit campus. We do our best to arrange all requests sent in prior to your visit date.
We value our personal interviews with students because it allows us to get to know you the person. If you are unable to visit campus we have a program that connects you with staff visiting in your area at various times of the year. In addition, we have very dedicated alums who would love to interview with you on our behalf in their hometown area; just contact us to see if there is an alum in your area that we can connect you with.
Admissions holds Legacy Days in the summer to help our alumni parents prepare their children for the college process. Our "Chips" are invited to campus to learn more about St. Lawrence and the admissions process.
