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.

Our Office Location

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

Beginning Monday, October 3rd, the Admission and Financial Aid offices will welcome visitors back in the newly renovated, historic Slocum Hall. Parking is available in the East parking Lot, off of Sandusky Street, just north of Edwards Gymnasium. There will be marked spaces for admission guests on the north side of this lot.


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.

Campus Tours

Campus Tours will be offered three times daily Monday – Friday, and one tour on Saturday (academic year only). Twilight Tours are also offered for your convenience on select Thursday evenings (6pm). These twilight 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 select Thursdays at 7pm. 

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.

Class Visits, faculty meetings, coach appointments

Requests for class visits (high school seniors only) as well as faculty and/or coach meetings will be scheduled based on availability and must be requested at least 2 business days before the scheduled visit.  

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.
