New live virtual visits

Western Oregon University will be providing Online Campus Tours through Facebook live. Tours will be an hour and a half long and include housing. You will have the opportunity to ask current students any questions you may have. This would be a great time to get a first, or second, look at campus while getting the opportunity to ask a Student Ambassador any final questions you may have about the campus or your transition to WOU. To request closed captioning for the tour, please contact

Visitor Parking

We love visitors at WOU, so we make parking simple! There are more than a dozen lots throughout campus for you to use, and free guest parking passes are available from every department/organization. You can arrange parking in advance, or just drop in and pick up a pass. Either way, we’re happy to have you on campus.

Stay a Little Longer

Extend your visit to WOU by checking out one of our many campus events. On any given day, you’ll find art exhibitions, student performances, sports events, club events and displays at the library, all of which are open to the public. It just goes to show you that there’s plenty to do at WOU!
