Chatham University

Visit Chatham

We're delighted that you're planning a visit!  From stunning locations to challenging coursework to an exceptionally friendly campus community, Chatham has a lot to offer, and the best way to experience it is in person.  

Undergraduate Visit

Whether you’re just beginning to look at colleges or have already been accepted, we’re excited to bring you on campus and help you take the next step of your college journey.  Come let our Student Ambassadors show you where you’ll eat, sleep, study, hang out, have brilliant insights, and relax. Campus tours are available Monday through Friday and on Saturdays. 

One of the top ways to experience what a Chatham education is like is to sit in on a class in your area of interest, or to schedule a meeting with one of our faculty members. A wide selection of classes across majors is available. If you’re interested, let us know when you schedule your tour.

Graduate Visit

Come get a sense of the people, places, and opportunities you’ll experience at Chatham University. Depending on your program, you’ll enjoy a guided tour of Shadyside Campus, Chatham Eastside, or Eden Hall Campus, and meet with an admissions officer who can answer your questions.

If you like, you can also meet with a faculty member in your area of interest, and depending on what time you visit, enjoy lunch with a current Chatham graduate student.
