Schedule your group visit
Would you like to plan a virtual visit for your group? If so, please answer all questions that apply including any additional activities that your group is interested in. Many can be converted to a virtual format.
Masks are recommended but not required to be worn in campus buildings. We can supply you with a mask if you would like one. If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, have recently been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or are currently awaiting results for a COVID-19 test, we ask you to postpone your visit to ESU.
Getting Here + Getting Around
Where to park + where to go
The campus visit meets on the east side of the Memorial Union, located at 1331 Market St., Emporia, KS 66801. We suggest buses drop off students at the Memorial Union first, then park in the free parking area north of the Student Recreation Center. Vans and cars can park in the metered, orange, or violet parking across from the Memorial Union building. Don't pay the meter - we will give you a parking pass. We'll be there to greet you just inside the east doors of the Union.
Requests for accommodation
Our Student Accessibility & Support Services office is here to answer your questions and arrange accommodations for you. We are located in the front of Plumb Hall, room 106.

City of Emporia
While you're visiting campus, take some time to explore beautiful Emporia. You'll be glad you did.
If you are not part of a large-group visit scheduled by an educator or a group leader you should sign up for a Black + Gold Visit Day or a Daily Visit. If you're already admitted and are ready to enroll, sign up for a Hornet Connection.
