Visit the IUP Campus

  • 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.

  • Things are uncertain right now, we know. In a perfect world, you’d be here. You’d be in the Oak Grove. You’d see where the new science building is coming. You’d see what makes IUP so special. But until things get back to normal, we’re got some virtual resources to give you a taste of what it’s like to visit IUP. And when this is over, we’d love to have you come visit in person.

    Watch Our Daily Visit Presentation

    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.

    Take a Suite Tour

    Our suites are awesome, and they’re a great home away from home. Check out our three most popular suite styles with Crimson Guides Jacob and Kayla.
