Office of Admissions launches new self-guided tour app

Students and staff are invited to download the new self-guided campus tour app. The app can be used both on-campus or remotely from the comfort of home, which is especially important when statewide orders prevent in-person tours from taking place. For visitors who come to campus, the app will connect to GPS and provide turn-by-turn directions for a walking or driving tour. After downloading the app, students will need to create an account (or sign in if they have already used the app) so the app can be used in its entirety. Details can be found at Find and download the app by searching “WMU Campus Tour” in the App Store or Google Play.
