Prospective Student Campus Tours

Students on a campus tour

The best way for you to discover what it means to live and learn at CatholicU is to visit our campus!

Join one of our Cardinal Ambassadors on a walking tour of our beautiful 176-acre campus, the largest and greenest in Washington, D.C. Our tours are ideal if you're early in your college search, but are open to students in any stage of the college application process. 

During your visit, a member of the CatholicU Admission team will conduct a 30-minute information session that will cover everything from academics and internships to student life and faith development. We hope to see you soon!
