Campus Tours

Greetings from Catamount Country!!! Campus tours are a great way to get to see the campus and learn a little bit about the buildings and activities on campus. As comprehensive as a tour is, it only gives you a taste of what campus is truly like.

Campus tours will not be held when the university is closed, or when on campus events preclude doing tours of campus. Those dates are listed here:

  • Monday, September 1 - Labor Day Holiday
  • Friday Afternoon, October 24 - WCU Homecoming Parade
  • Thursday & Friday, November 27-28 - Thanksgiving Holidays
  • Monday - Friday, December 22-26 - Christmas Holidays
Tour Basics:
  • Directions to campus can be found here.
  • A digital campus map can be found here. Click on the Support Offices checkbox. The top green S marker (of the 2) just above the Intramurals Field is where your tour will now start. Once you enter campus at the main entrance, you will veer to the right of the round-a-bout and then take your first right, go over the creek, and 50 yards ahead of you is the entrance to the Admissions Office. You may park in any spaces that have the Future Catamount sign on the post.
  • Tours depart promptly on the hour. Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete a visitor's card. We are looking forward to seeing you on campus and want to make sure that you have a successful visit. If you have any requests or special needs, please make sure to let us know so that we can accommodate you!
  • A student ambassador or an admission counselor will be your guide for an extensive walking tour of the campus. Please make sure you wear comfortable shoes. We also recommend that you carry a bottle of water on warm days.
