Visit Canisius

Our 72-acre campus rests atop a labyrinth of tunnels. The underground network runs from Dugan Hall to Old Main, from Street Side Café to Bouwhuis Library. The tunnels serve a practical use—they keep us warm through Western New York winters. But there’s more to it than that. They’re vibrant. You can’t walk 10 feet without hearing a welcoming ‘hello.’ Bright posters adorn the walls—invitations for upcoming events. Friendships form on the pathways to class. Snacks are shared. Courses are taught. Clubs rally. Our tunnels keep us connected, in more ways than one.

Saturday Visits

Nothing beats first-hand experience. It’s the best way to learn and it’s the best way to choose a college. We’d love to show you around (and show you off a little, too). Our Saturday visits begin at 10 am, and include an admissions presentation and a campus tour. On select Saturdays, certain departments will be represented to answer questions and give a presentation. All students are welcome to attend any Saturday visit. This year, you’re invited to visit on the following dates:                                      

  • January 24
  • February 21
  • March 14
  • March 21
  • April 11
  • April 18
  • May 9

Weekday Visits

To get the full Canisius experience, sit down for a one-on-one conversation. Get your questions answered in person. Spend half-an-hour getting to know an admissions counselor. See our state-of-the-art campus for yourself. This individualized approach is a lot like a Canisius education.

Accepted Students Day

Sunday, March 8, 2015. Accepted students are invited to come and enjoy a day of meeting fellow classmates, talking to financial aid, meeting current students and touring the campus as an accepted student. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.  

Open House


Don’t choose a college based on a letter you get in the mail. The perfect school shouldn’t just be perfect on paper; it should be the right fit for you in real life. Nothing beats first-hand experience – that’s why we’re inviting you to the Canisius College Spring Open House on Saturday, April 25th. 

At Canisius College, we want our students to be curious. At our Open House, you’ll have a chance to ask all of your questions. Ask about the admissions process and scholarship opportunities, or about what you can study or where you will live. Get the information you need, directly from the source.

Group Visit

Canisius offers group visits that typically include a tour of campus and an admissions presentation. Visits are offered weekdays throughout the year at 9:30AM and at 1:00P. Please contact us at least three weeks in advance to schedule your visit.
