NPU Preview Day

NPU 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. NPU Preview Days are an ideal way for both high school and transfer students to get to know North Park better.

Register for your NPU Preview Day at least one week in advance. If you register less than one week ahead, we can't guarantee capacity for on-campus housing.

Making Arrangements

Overnight Dates

NPU Preview Days run on a Sunday-to-Monday schedule. All high school students are invited to attend, though the option of staying overnight on campus is reserved for high school seniors and transfer students.

Accommodations for parents and for high school sophomores and juniors must be made directly with hotels in the area. Your hotel may be able to offer transportation options to and from campus, so be sure to ask. Otherwise, a vast array of car-rental agencies have offices at O'Hare and Midway Airports.


We are happy to 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.

Contact the Visit Desk at (800) 888-6728 or (773) 244-5511 with any questions.
