Interviews & Information Sessions
UWO does not conduct interviews with prospective students regarding admissions. However, campus tours are a surefire way to get first-hand information from current students about Western life.
Campus Tours
Spring and summer campus tours run from early May until mid-August 2010 and are available for booking beginning early April. They start at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and run for about three hours each, with stops at faculties, different residence styles, and campus hotspots. Complimentary parking passes are provided to tour-takers upon an initial deposit. Book your reservation online well in advance; these tours fill up quickly!
Overnight Visits
Overnight accommodations for summer campus tours can be found at a reasonable rate with the Western Bed and Breakfast service at Elgin Hall. Located right on campus, this newer residence offers prospective students an authentic glimpse to dormitory living, while being in close proximity to the starting points of their campus tour. Reservation information and rates can be found online: www.has.uwo.ca/hospitality/bedandbreakfast/index.htm.
Did You Know?
  • Campus tours are far more frequent in the summer, so try to visit UWO between May and August.
  • Don't have time to visit Western's campus? Virtual tours of all residences and parts of UWO can be found online for an authentic representation!
  • If planning to visit UWO in less than four days, contact the campus tours office directly to ensure a spot: (519) 661-2100.
  • Saturday tours don't look at residences, so weekday tours are more advantageous for future students.
