On-campus visit guidelines

We are thrilled to return to hosting on campus visits and continue to take the health and safety of our campus community (including our visitors) very seriously.

To keep our community safe, please note the following guidelines:

  • Registration is required in advance for our info session/tour. Submit the request a visit form and list your preferred date and an alternate date. Please note, your registration is not confirmed until you receive an email from our office.
  • The maximum capacity for our info sessions is 8 students, Monday through Thursday, and 25 students on Friday. Each student may have one registered guest join the info session, but all guests of students may attend the guided tour. If your requested visit date is full, you will be scheduled for an alternative date. 
  • Before arriving on campus, visitors must take a temperature check and self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms. A person who has COVID-19 symptoms or who is being treated for COVID-19 or potential COVID-19 may not visit campus.
  • While on campus, visitors must follow all of the on-campus guidance applicable to members of the IU community. Masks are required for all campus visitors in all indoor spaces. Masks are optional outdoors for campus visitors who are fully vaccinated. Those who are not vaccinated or are in the process of becoming fully vaccinated—which occurs two weeks past the last dose of a COVID-19 vaccine—should wear a mask on campus.
  • Public health and safety concerns could require the cancellation of your Jacobs visit. You will be notified as soon as possible in the event of a cancellation of your scheduled visit.

Make time for a campus tour

While you’re here, schedule a campus visit through the Indiana University Office of Admissions. These two-hour tours are led by student guides and include a residence hall tour.
