Ohio Wesleyan University's goal is to offer the most positive experience to all visitors on our campus while maintaining a safe living, learning, and working environment for our students, faculty, and staff.

That said, WELCOME to OWU! We're thrilled you're planning to visit our campus in beautiful Delaware, Ohio.

We've moved!

Admission and Financial Aid offices and staff have moved temporarily to Mowry Alumni Center located just west of Sandusky Street in the center of campus. Parking is available at the corner of Park Avenue and Sandusky Street (the marked spaces for guests in this lot face Sandusky Street.)


So that we can offer a positive visit experience, we prefer that you register for a campus visit in advance. Walk-in visitors will only be accommodated if we have an opening our one of our daily tours. If no space is available, you will be given the opportunity to take a self-guided tour, complete with QR codes for views inside our buildings. Self-guided tour maps are available on the map kiosk by the clock tower near Sturges Hall.

Guidelines for All Campus Visits

As of March 1, we have lifted the campus-wide mask mandate. We understand individuals may have special concerns, and therefore, strongly support anyone's decision to wear a mask at any time. Please note:

  • Campus community members are not required to wear facial coverings. 
  • Individual faculty members will set the policy for facial coverings in their classrooms. 
  • Campus visitors are not required to wear facial coverings during campus visits except when attending a class where the faculty member does require them in the classroom. Student visitors should have a mask on hand for these instances. 
  • Beginning February 1, any students visiting campus who want to sit in on a class will have to show proof of vaccination.

As always, we will continue to monitor recommendations and conditions regarding our campus policies and visitor guidelines and share updates as they occur.

Campus Tours

Campus Tours will be offered three times daily Monday – Friday, and one tour on Saturday (academic year only) with up to eight families per scheduled tour time. Campus tours will walk the exterior campus and tour the interior of select buildings. Twilight Tours are also offered for your convenience on select Thursday evenings. These tours are student-led; there is no Admission staff available at this time.

Information Sessions

An information session will accompany your campus tour, providing additional information about Ohio Wesleyan and the admission process. We will continue to offer Virtual Information Sessions on Thursdays at 7pm, twice a month (first and third Thursdays). 

STUDENT INTERVIEWS (for High school seniors)

Ohio Wesleyan does not require interviews for admission. However, we do offer the opportunity to have a “Conversation with a Counselor” to ask additional questions and get more insight about OWU. We will do our best to accommodate requests for Conversations based on staff availability.


We will offer bottled water to keep you hydrated during your visit. Unfortunately, no other refreshments will be provided at this time.

On-Campus Dining

If campus visitors are interested in trying one of our on-campus dining options they may do so at their own expense. There are also a number of restaurants in downtown Delaware that we would be happy to recommend. If you have questions about either option just ask the students and/or staff on duty.
