Visit Us!

Almost any student can tell you that visiting the campus will really help you get the feel of the place. We'd love to see you and we're happy to help you explore the college while you're here. Visit days, coordinated through the Office of Admissions, are formal programs that show you specific areas of campus. We can also set up a private tour, and you can contact a specific department to find a good time to visit them.

Purdue University is on Eastern Standard Time (EST) and observes Daylight Savings Time.
