North Park Preview Days

Preview Days for the Spring Semester have concluded. Please join us at another campus visit event.

North Park Preview Days offer you a firsthand taste of the North Park University experience by giving you the opportunity to talk with students and professors, eat in our dining hall, sit in on a class, and attend a worship celebration. High school seniors and transfer students can even stay overnight in one of our dorms. Parents are welcome, and we have special activities just for them. North Park Preview Days are an ideal way for both high school and transfer students to get to know North Park better.

Event Registration

Online registration is required for each North Park Preview Day event, and events often reach capacity. We recommend registering for a Preview Day at least two weeks in advance of the date you'd like attend. You will receive an email confirmation of your registration and any further details needed between your registration and the event date. If you have any questions about the registration process or the event, please contact the Visit Desk at (800) 888-6728 or (773) 244-5500 or contact our admissions team.

Making Arrangements

Overnight Dates

High school seniors and transfer students attending a Preview Day event can stay overnight in one of our dorms on Sunday night with a host student. Please indicate your interest in this on the registration form. Accommodations for parents and high school sophomores and juniors must be made directly with hotels in the area.


We are happy to provide directions to our campus and if needed, we can assist you and your family in arranging transportation from an airport, bus, or train terminal to North Park's campus. Please indicate on the registration form that you'd like some help in this area, and our visit coordinator will be in touch with you to work out the details.

You may park in our visitor parking lot at the corner of Foster and Kedzie Avenues. No visitor parking passes are needed for the event. Download a campus map with designated parking areas.
