Open House

  • Due to ongoing national concern regarding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), all on-campus admissions visits have been canceled to minimize the risk of disease transmission. Guests who have signed up for events will be notified by the Admissions Office. In the meantime, please visit campus virtually utilizing the resources below.

  • We wish you could be here, and hopefully in the near future you can be! But in the meantime, we’ve got a few different ways for you to get to know IUP.

    Everything You Need to Know about IUP—In Just 8 Minutes

    We want to see you on campus, no doubt. And we’ve got an awesome daily visit event to fit your busy schedule. But since we’re not able to hold visits on campus before June, we’ve got another option for you. Start by watching the admissions video here, and then check out the virtual tour next. It’s almost as good as really being here!

    Launch Experience

    Take Our Virtual Tour

    Other than being here in person, it’s the best way to see IUP. Tour campus through videos and photographs, with stops at a residence hall, dining facility, academic building, library, the Oak Grove, and more.
