On-Campus, In-Person Visit Opportunities 

In-Person Campus Tours & Information Sessions

We welcome you to join us on campus for a visit. Due to COVID-19 and safety protocols we are not able to accommodate walk-ins on student-led tours (visitors must register for a tour time), but self guided walking tours of campus are an option.

Your well-being and safety, along with that of our staff is our top concern. When visiting campus, a number of protocols have been put in place in coordination with the State of Rhode Island Department of Health, and in adherence to CDC guidance, including travel restrictions. Please see below for a list of protocols, and visit the State of Rhode Island website for the most up-to-date travel restrictions.  

During your on-campus visit you will receive an admission information session presented by a professional admission staff member*, and a student-led campus tour*. The approximately 30-minute admission presentation will allow you to discover what makes Roger Williams University distinctive, and will cover information and tips about the application, scholarships, and the financial aid process. During the 60-to-75-minute campus tour, you will explore all corners of campus with a current student who will share personal experiences and stories about the RWU community.

*The Information Session will take place inside a well-ventilated space with social distancing practices in place, but if you would prefer to only take advantage of the tour experience please email the Visit Team at visit@rwu.edu to make those arrangements. We require at least 24-hour notice to accommodate such requests.  

Information sessions and campus tours are offered Monday through Friday at 9 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
