COVID-19 and Visiting NU

Niagara University is following the lead of federal health organizations to do everything possible to keep our community safe and healthy. Click here to view NU’s coronavirus information page.

We understand that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s mandate to close K-12 schools as a public safety measure impacts many of our prospective students, which may add a layer of uncertainty to an already stressful time.

Please rest assured that the Niagara University community is here to support you, as we always are for our students and families. You undoubtedly have questions, and below we’ve posted responses to the inquiries that we most frequently receive, including how we’re making accommodations related to requirements, deadlines, and more. Our overarching goal for this resource is to help alleviate some of your concerns as you navigate your college exploration and decision process.

If you have questions that aren’t listed here, please don’t hesitate to connect with us at any time. Your NU admissions advisor is available to help you via call, email, text, or videoconferencing. Contact information for undergraduate advisement can be found here, while contact information for graduate studies advisement is available here.

The general phone number for the Office of Admissions is 800.462.2111 or 716.286.8700.

Campus & Visits

In accordance with Governor Cuomo’s mandate, only essential personnel are currently present on Monteagle Ridge. The campus, however, is technically still open in the event that you and your family would like to tour it yourselves. Here is a link to our campus map.

We are still holding “daily visit” sessions on weekdays at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., but they will be in the form of an online meeting. Upon registering, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a link to access the event. Your “visit” will take place with admissions advisors and, upon request, representatives from other departments.

If you previously registered for a daily campus visit, you can expect to receive communication from your admissions advisor about transitioning to a virtual meeting.

All large group visits are being postponed at this time.

Admitted Students
