Campus Tours

The office of student experience has developed a Chicago campus tour led by NLU students. Continuing the valued tradition of National Louis being a “you” university, we believe that providing personal tours for prospective students lays the foundation for this student centered practice. We are very excited to enlist our current students to lead the charge. Who better to promote and disclose the benefits of a National Louis education, than the individuals who put the “you” in University?

We invite you to explore the rich architectural design of the historic former People’s Gas Building to the honored traditions and evolution of National Louis University. Each prospective student will discover exciting educational possibilities as they are introduced to National Louis University and all that it has to offer.
