Visit Canisius Options
Our 72-acre campus rests atop a labyrinth of tunnels. The underground network runs from Dugan Hall to Old Main, from Iggy's in Palisano Pavilion 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.
Specialty Information Sessions
Nothing beats first-hand experience. It’s the best way to learn about and choose a college. We’d love to show you around (and show off a little, too). Our Information Sessions begin at 10:00 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 Information Session. This year, you’re invited to visit on the following dates:
September 10 *Special presentation from Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation
October 10 (Columbus Day)
October 29 *Special presentation from Pre-Med
November 11 (Veteran’s Day) *Special presentation from Biology

Canisius Summer Overnight
Monday, July 11 – Tuesday, July 12, 2016
Rising seniors here is your chance to come spend the night at Canisius College! Join us in July for a two day overnight visit that will help you get the information and experience you need to start thinking about college. Sessions will include leadership activities, information on applying to Canisius, exploring all Canisius has to offer, plus fun games and activities throughout the days. This event is for prospective students that are entering their senior year of high school this fall.
Thank you for your interest in the Canisius Summer Overnight! Unfortunately, this event has been filled to capacity. If you would like to be added to a wait list, please call the Admissions Office at 716-888-2200. You can check out our visit page for other visit opportunities as well.
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.
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.
