Plan Your Campus Visit

    Visiting our beautiful campus is step one to finding out if Elmhurst is the right fit for you. Please visit elmhurst.edu/COVID-19-updates for the latest COVID-19 information. Beginning July 1, we will begin to accommodate one student per hour and we encourage only bringing one guest to campus; however, each student can bring up to two guests. As a second measure of safety, we may check your temperature prior to your appointment.
