Visiting Manchester

Visit Manchester University

Are we a good fit for you?

You have to experience Manchester to really "get it." After all, a campus visit is one of the most important steps in choosing the college that's right for you. We warmly welcome you to visit us and learn what we're all about (hint: relationships). We sincerely want to talk with you about your interests and goals, and discover whether Manchester is the fit for your academic future.

Come during one of our visit events for specialized opportunities or schedule an individual visit on a weekday.

Individual Weekday Visits

Schedule a personalized visit on a weekday. During the school year, options include a tour, time with admissions, faculty, coaches, current students and free lunch. During the summer, our faculty and coaches are away, so your campus visit includes a tour with a current student and a personal meeting with an admissions counselor to answer all your questions.
