Visit our Campus

Discover How One Visit Will Make All the Difference.

Come to campus for a good look. You’ll be impressed by the mix of historic and modern buildings, the hundreds of trees and areas of green space, the places to compete and express yourself, and the friendly environments created for studying and socializing.

Most important, meet with students, faculty, and staff who will make you feel welcome and at ease. You can go on a tour, talk to an admission representative and financial aid counselor, and spend time exploring on your own, too.

If you can’t get to campus, that’s OK. You can view all the buildings and outdoor spaces through an informative virtual tour — it’s the next best thing to being here. Or maybe AU is coming to your school.
