Come visit the campus

Come experience Bishop’s

It’s well worth the travel time to come to Lennoxville, explore our campus and join our community for a day. You might have the opportunity to sit in on an exciting classroom discussion, talk to a professor about a program you’re interested in, or chat with current students about what it’s like to have small classes and be on a first-name basis with your professors.

After a few hours here with us, we’re pretty sure you’ll have made your choice.

Student tour guides

Current students host our campus tours because they are, by far, the best people to show you around campus and introduce you to life at Bishop’s! They know the university inside out and, more importantly, they understand the kinds of questions you might have about the campus and about life at Bishop’s.

So don’t be shy and ask away – our guides will be happy to give you all the information they can about BU.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE

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 campus tour program until the end of April 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.
