Campus Visit FAQS

I tried to reserve a spot for the visit online, but the date that I want to come is not available; why not?

There are a few reasons that a date might not be available. The visit for that date might have reached capacity, the university might be closed, or it might be our annual fall or spring break. Please keep in mind that some dates do fill quickly and you should register as early as possible. We release visit dates one month at a time.

What should I bring with me to a campus visit?

You should bring something to write with and a list of questions you want to have answered. Remember to bring a refillable water container if needed – it is a 90-minute tour!

What happens if there is severe weather on the day of my visit?

All of our staff are trained how to respond in emergency weather situations. Please note the inclement weather policy for campus closings and delays. If classes are delayed two hours, the program will begin at the regularly scheduled time. If classes are canceled and the University is closed, the program will be canceled as well.  You can follow our campus weather status on our homepage or call 502.852.5555 for the open status of our University. In the event of a closing, if you have already travelled to Louisville, please contact us and we will be willing to work with you!

What should I wear?

Dress casually for your visit to campus. Comfortable shoes for the tour are a must, and a jacket or umbrella are helpful in case of rain. Check the weather for Louisville.

Where do I park?

You will park at our North Information Center. Get directions.
If you have a GPS and need the address for the North Info Center:

If parking at the North Center reaches capacity we will direct you to our Floyd Street Garage.
