We offer a number of ways to explore St. Bonaventure to see if it's the right fit for you.

St. Bonaventure University


We welcome visits to the SBU campus

There's no better way to learn what it means to be a Bonnie than by visiting our campus. Plan your visit today!

Please note that while we are eager for your visit, we continue to adhere to New York state COVID-19 guidelines, and kindly ask your compliance with these safety measures.

Due to capacity limitations, we regret that walk-in visitors cannot be accommodated for any of the visit options below. Furthermore, all students visiting campus must register at least 48 hours in advance of the event they select. We also ask that you consider bringing no more than two guests (in addition to the visiting student).

Campus visit options

Show your true colors! Students attending one of our three on-campus visit options below will receive an SBU T-shirt! 

1. Campus tours & informal chat sessions on select weekdays 
    Take a one-hour campus tour, then meet one-on-one with an Admissions representative for an informal, relaxed conversation to learn more about SBU. (Please note: There may be others on your tour, but the chat sessions will take place individually.)

2. Weekday (Mon., Wed. & Fri.) small-group info sessions
    In a small-group presentation lasting about 30 minutes, an Admissions team member will share information about the admissions process, financial aid timelines, student life and academic offerings. This will be followed by a multi-family campus tour lasting about one hour. You may choose a morning or afternoon session. A complimentary lunch will be available following the morning session. Guests in the afternoon session will leave campus with a light snack for the trip home.

3. July 10 & July 17 Preview Days
    • Saturday, July 10: Morning & afternoon sessions
    • Saturday, July 17: Morning (in conjunction with Pre-healthcare Day) and afternoon sessions

    Attend a group presentation by Admissions team members featuring information on the admissions process, financial aid timelines, student life and academic offerings, followed by a multi-family campus tour. A complimentary lunch will be available in the dining hall. (Those attending an afternoon session who wish to have lunch should arrive no later than 12:15 p.m.)

    Tentative agendas can be accessed below.


      SPECIAL NOTE: Each Summer Preview Day session is open to students of all majors, however, we encourage those interested in healthcare to attend the July 17 morning session.
