St. Lawrence University has many opportunities which allow us to connect with students so we get to know them prior to reviewing their application and for them to get to know our campus community. We welcome visitors to campus Monday through Friday and on most Saturdays.
On campus, the Admissions and Financial Aid office is located in historic Payson Hall on Park Street (building 27 on our campus map). Use this link for GPS directions. Parking for our guests is located across the street from Payson in Lot E (near our Brewer Bookstore - building 74) where we have reserved parking for our visitors. When you arrive you will receive a parking permit for your vehicle.
Our one-one-one interviews allow prospective students to get to know St. Lawrence while we get to know them.
While we offer a variety of ways for you to connect with St. Lawrence, we believe the best way to discover our community is to take an individualized campus tour.
