Preview Weekend is an immersive two-day experience where you learn what it’s like to be a TWU student. You’ll meet new friends, eat with faculty members, attend lectures and info sessions, explore financial aid options, stay overnight in dorms and get a taste for the renowned TWU community you’ve heard so much about.

No matter whether you’re coming straight from high school, wrapping up a gap year or planning to transfer in from another institution, Preview Weekend is perfect for you. (P.S. Parents are welcome to come along, too!)


Free on-campus parking will be provided for all guests. There will be staff on site to direct you to the appropriate parking areas and provide you with a parking pass to place on your dashboard.
