Many of our current students will tell you it was their first visit to campus that confirmed their decision to attend Carlow. Step foot on our lovely little campus; meet the fantastic students, faculty and staff; and you'll know pretty quickly if Carlow is the place for you.

We have two types of visits, Admissions Events or Weekday Individual Campus Visits. Below you will find our 2019-2020 Admission Events with registration links. Once your registration for any of the events below has been processed you will receive a confirmation email with additional details regarding the event.

Weekday Individual Campus Visits are available Monday through Friday with tours at 10 a.m., 12 noon, and 2 p.m. If you are interested in visiting during the week, please complete a visit request and our coordinator will contact you to finalize your appointment. 

Weekday Group Visits with 5 or more students

If you would like to do a weekday individual campus tour and you have 5 or more students, please contact our Coordinator of Enrollment Events and Special Projects, Ashley Ganoe.
