BU open houses
Throughout the year, we host a variety of events aimed at helping new (and potential) students get a sense of what it’s really like to be part of the Bishop’s community. We encourage you to join us for one (or more!) of these activities and discover why it is such a great time to be a student at BU. After all, there’s nothing quite like experiencing the power of Purple firsthand!
Looking for the best way to find out when we’ll be heading your way, or when you’ll be invited to visit us in Lennoxville for a special event? Bookmark this page, and check back often for news!

With the World Health Organization’s classification of the COVID-19 as a worldwide pandemic, the Canadian and Quebec governments have made recent announcements that restrict activities on university campuses, including Bishop’s. Due to these announcements, and for the health and safety of both our campus community and visitors to campus, we have pro-actively suspended our in-person campus tour program for the remainder of the Fall semester, at which point we will reassess. We will be working on a series of virtual campus tours and live tour sessions which will be announced soon.
Please note that Bishop’s University does not penalize students through the admissions process who are unable to demonstrate interest or come to on or off campus events.
We understand that visiting our campus plays an important role in the decision making process of your future university and we thank you for your understanding in this matter and unique situation we are all facing. For more information on preventing COVID-19 and what Bishop’s University is doing, please visit: www.ubishops.ca/coronavirus.
Should you have any specific concerns please contact us at: email@example.com or 1-819-822-9600 ext. 2681 (Office hours are Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 4:00 pm EDT).
Please stay healthy and safe!
