Experience the Mecca

Visiting Howard University provides students with an opportunity to immerse themselves in the Howard Experience and to interact with our students, faculty and staff. Our campus visit program is designed to provide our guests with information about our wide range of academic programs, the admission process, financial aid, and student life on campus. Our virtual information sessions and campus tours last approximately one hour.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not accepting group visits at this time. Thank you for understanding.
