​​​​​​​​​​Visiting us on campus

One of the best ways to really get a feel for a school is to see the spaces and meet the people! We are thrilled to be transitioning back into in person tours. For the time being, we will be offering both in person and virtual visit opportunities.

School of Music Information Sessions and Tours

​​The School of Music will resume in person tours of the Holtschneider Performance Center and the Jarvis Opera Hall in mid-June. We will also be offering information sessions online every weekday at 1:30pm. Information sessions will be led by either the Director or Assistant Director of Admissions and a current student in the School of Music. Register here  for the tours and information sessions. (The title will denote which ones are online and which ones are in person.)  

*PLEASE NOTE*: Masks are currently required in all DePaul buildings. If you are visiting us from an orange state on this list​, you must be prepared to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of your arrival.

General University Information Sessions and Tours

DePaul University offers general campus tours of the Lincoln Park Campus on this page. General campus tours do not include the School of Music buildings. You can also tour the Loop campus, but most School of Music classes happen on the Lincoln Park campus.

Trial Lessons with Music Faculty

Students interested in having a trial lesson or meeting with a faculty member should contact that person directly. Details of trial lessons (including costs) are arranged directly with faculty. Faculty bios and contact information can be found here

If you'd like to sit in on a class or rehearsal, email and we can coordinate that for you!
