Every detail of Elon’s 636-acre residential campus is designed to support close collaboration and experiential learning. Academic facilities include high-tech classrooms, labs and studios, group engagement spaces and offices configured to support students and faculty working closely together. The campus includes seven residential neighborhoods and first-rate athletics and recreational resources. It’s all set in a botanical garden with groves of historic oak trees.
You’ve seen the photos, now plan your visit and experience Elon firsthand.
To determine if Elon is right for you, it’s essential to visit campus, meet students and faculty and learn about the community culture.
Campus tours run Monday through Saturday and begin with an information session led by an admissions counselor who will explain Elon’s distinctive approach to experiential academics and provide details about the admissions and financial aid processes. Following the session, a student guide will lead you on a campus walking tour.
Tours are offered Monday through Friday at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. and most Saturdays throughout the year.
Transfer Student Campus Visit
In addition to our regular campus tours for prospective students, we also offer a separate campus visit experience for transfer students and their families. Register for one of our transfer campus visit sessions below.
Group visits to campus are available Monday–Friday and require advance registration. We are able to accommodate school and non-profit groups (5-50 students at a time) who work with high school students. Schedule a group visit.
Why visit an Elon class?

- This is an opportunity to engage with our faculty and students. We encourage visitors to ask questions and introduce yourself to the professor
