Visit Our Campus

Welcome to WMU!

Thank you for your interest in visiting Western Michigan University! We love to help welcome future graduate students to our community. We are hosting small, in-person tours while also being conscious of safety measures and physical distancing for both our campus community and visitors. As such, our graduate student ambassadors are prepared to offer you both virtual and in-person options.   

Additionally, we have a self-guided tour app (Search "WMU Campus Tour" in your preferred app store) that can be used both on-campus and remotely from the comfort of your own home. If you choose to come to campus, the app will connect to GPS and give you turn-by-turn directions. After downloading the app, you will need to create an account (or sign in if you have already used the app), so that you are able to use the app in its entirety.   

Should you choose the in-person visit experience, you will receive a graduate student-led walking tour through our campus. Please note that building access can change rapidly and some buildings remain closed for the time being.    


Before scheduling a campus tour, we recommend that prospective graduate students contact their academic department to schedule a visit for program-specific information. Every effort will be made to coordinate the campus tour with the departmental visit. 

The campus tour with be a general main campus tour provided by a graduate student ambassador.  Tours are primarily offered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the Fall and Spring semesters, exclusive of holidays and breaks. For semester dates and breaks, please visit our online academic calendar.
