A Firsthand View (Campus Visits)

Trinity cordially invites you to visit our campus and live a day in the life of a Trinity student. Whether you choose to visit during one of our special visit events or schedule a personalized visit, you will get a firsthand, up-close-and-personal view of life at Trinity. The following information will introduce you to the different opportunities we offer for campus visits. To set up a visit, fill out the reservation form on our website or in our campus visit brochure, call our office toll-free at 847.317.7000, or e-mail us at visits@tiu.edu.
There are 3 ways to visit:  Preview Day (group visit with other students and families), personalized on-campus visit, and virtual visit:

Preview Day Events

Our Preview Days are a great opportunity to learn about Trinity and meet other prospective students and their families. Experience what it's like to be a student on campus:

  • Overnight Stay in Residence Halls (optional, availability is dependent on COVID situation)
  • Breakfast
  • Chapel Experience
  • Campus and Residence Hall Tours (visiting the residence halls is dependent on COVID)
  • Class Visit
  • Lunch in Hawkins Hall
  • Interaction with Student Life and faculty

Personalized Visits

If you can’t make it to a Preview Day, you can arrange a personalized visit at no cost. Personalized visits are available Monday-Friday.  On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, visitors should expect an optional overnight stay in the dorms (COVID allowing), an informational session with admissions/financial aid, a chapel experience, a campus tour, lunch in Hawkins Hall, either a class visit or a meeting with a faculty member, and the opportunity to meet with a coach or co-curricular director.  Please plan your visit with us at least 72 hours in advance by signing up on our website.

Our Tuesday and Thursday schedule is shorter.  Plan on being on campus either in the morning or in the afternoon.  Each visit will include a visit with admissions/financial aid, a campus tour, and a meal in our award winning dining hall.  We send each prospective student home with a t-shirt.

Virtual Visits

If you can't make it in person, we encourage you to visit us from a distance.  You can sign up for a virtual visit on our website.  Virtual visits include a short campus tour video, an informational session with admissions, a financial aid session, an opportunity to sit in on a class via Zoom, an invitation to meet with a coach or co-curricular director, and an invitation to meet one on one with a faculty member by Zoom.  Yup, we'll even mail you a t-shirt.
