The Briar Cliff University campus is only open to visitors for limited capacity visits by appointment or reservation. With our visitors’ health and safety in mind, we have taken several precautions including requiring face coverings, modifying visit schedules, locations, and room arrangements to facilitate social distancing. Across campus, we have implemented many safety measures, including requiring face coverings and daily Charger Health Checks. We appreciate your contributions to help us #TakeCharge in keeping our campus safe.

In-Person Tours

A personalized tour of campus is the best way to experience the Briar Cliff difference. While every visit experience will be customized to your specific interests, generally your time on campus will include a tour, a sit down with the admissions team to learn more about Briar Cliff, the chance to meet faculty, coaches, or staff, and one-on-one time with a counselor to answer any questions you may have.

Individual campus visits typically last between 90 to 120 minutes. In light of the current pandemic, each available time slot will be limited to two visitors on a first-come, first-served basis. Every in-person visitor will be permitted to bring a maximum of two guests. Our team is available for in-person visits five days of the week, with the exception of Wednesdays and Sundays. The weekday available time slots are 9:00 AM, 11:00 AM, and 1:00 PM, while the Saturday options are 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM.  All visits are currently by appointment only. 

Please contact us at 712-279-5200 if none of the available times work with your current travel plans or you wish to reschedule. Make the most of your trip and plan ahead with directions, maps, and options for exploring the sites while you are here
