A Visit Is Worth a Thousand Words

We can talk to you all day about the quality of Valpo’s academic programs, the commitment of our faculty to your success, or the way you’ll feel right at home as soon as you get to campus. But there’s nothing like chatting with current faculty, staff & students and taking a guided campus tour to really get to know Valpo. 

In line with CDC guidelines, Valparaiso University is requiring face masks, while in classroom and lab settings on campus. Those who have not been fully vaccinated are required to wear masks at all times while on campus.

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!

The Center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (except during the holidays). Ask if we can accommodate you with a tour, or pick up a self-guided tour map from the acrylic box outside of the main door.
