Visit Campus

⚠️ Notice: Campus visit opportunities will resume on August 17

Virtual Information Session

If you are unable to visit campus, you are encouraged to participate in a virtual information session led by a member of the admissions staff. This is an excellent way to learn about the Holy Cross College experience, the application process, and financial aid resources available to you. These sessions are offered most Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. ET and last approximately one hour. The online session will be interactive with an opportunity for you to submit questions in real time.

Information Session and Campus Tour

If you are a prospective student, an information session with an admissions counselor is the best way for you to learn about the Holy Cross College experience, the application process, and financial aid resources available to you. These sessions are offered most weekdays at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and are followed immediately by a student-led campus tour. If you would like to meet a specific professor or are interested in meeting with representatives from athletics, campus ministry, career development, global perspectives, Notre Dame Marching Band, or ROTC, please let us know before you arrive so that we can do our best to accommodate your request. You can indicate a special meeting request on your visit registration form or by calling us at 574.239.8400.

Information sessions and campus tours are also offered on select Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. and on Notre Dame home football game Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. Those who participate in a campus tour on the Friday prior to a Notre Dame home football game or on Saturday morning will receive a complimentary parking pass (valued at $30) for game day parking at Holy Cross College.

For the safety of our students and visitors, the following protocols will be in place for campus visits:

  • Registration will be limited to allow for proper social distancing
  • Visitors will undergo a temperature check and health screening in the parking lot before the session begins
  • Visitors will be required to wear masks while inside buildings and while outside if social distancing cannot be observed
  • Classroom observation, overnight stays, and dining hall visits are currently not available
