Visit NSU Florida

Thank you for your interest in visiting Nova Southeastern University! NSU will be resuming in-person campus tours beginning Monday, September 14, 2020. Campus tours will include a 30-minute presentation and will be limited in capacity due to CDC, the state of Florida, and Broward County guidelines for group gatherings and physical distancing. 

NSU’s priority is the health and well-being of our campus community. As such, we have introduced several measures to enhance the safety of all of our guests, students, and staff. We ask that you please read the following information prior to registering for a campus tour:

  1. Tours will be limited to a capacity of 10 people per tour. We will increase capacity as restrictions and guidelines permit.
  2. Tours will be limited to 3 persons per party/family. Please ensure you only register guests in your party who are confirmed to attend due to the limited capacity of campus tours. 
  3. All guests attending a tour must register in advance. We are unable to accommodate walk-in guests at this time.
  4. All guests must review and adhere to NSU's policies and protocols related to COVID-19 and must sign NSU's COVID-19 Addendum and Attestation prior to arriving on campus for the tour. This attestation and addendum must be submitted at check-in.
  5. Once on campus, staff may ask you to answer a few short questions related to the health and safety of your party. 

Thank you in advance for your assistance in supporting the health and well-being of our campus community. 

NSU will continue to host virtual campus visit experiences for students and families who would prefer to visit NSU from the comfort of their home. You can sign up to attend a virtual visit experience below.

Shark Preview Weekends are enhanced visit experiences for students newly admitted to NSU Florida. They're your chance to get a taste of the Shark life, interview for Premier Programs, and determine if NSU Florida is the right fit for you. To attend and participate in Shark Preview Weekend, you must be admitted to the university and submit a supplemental Premier Programs application.

Shark Preview Weekend Update for 2021

In consideration for the health and safety of our NSU community and future Shark families related to COVID-19, we are introducing a completely live, interactive virtual experience for this year’s Shark Preview Weekends. We are so excited to bring our favorite event of the year with future Sharks right to your screens at home. We do wish we could share this experience with you in person, but we’ll bring you the next best thing!

This year’s Virtual Shark Preview Weekends are your chance to get your feet wet and test out the NSU Shark Life. During these enhanced, virtual admitted student experiences, you'll interview for Premier Programs and dive right into the NSU culture. We even have live, virtual programming for parents and family members so that everyone can get to know your potential new home away from home. In order to participate in Virtual Shark Preview Weekend, you must be admitted to NSU and apply for at least one Premier Program using the supplemental Premier Programs application.

Here's a sample of what we have planned for you:

  • Interview for Premier Programs
  • Engage with other admitted students from around the globe
  • Meet with our renowned professors for an in-depth look at academic life
  • Get to know current student leaders to hear firsthand about the NSU experience


The Halmos College of Arts and Sciences also offers a daily tour of the NSU Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center. You must request your tour at least 24 in hours in advance.

Register for an Oceanographic Campus Tour

To best maximize your visit to NSU, we recommend selecting the 10 a.m. undergraduate campus visit on NSU's main campus, followed by the afternoon Oceanographic Campus tour. Please allow at least 30 minutes of drive time to get from main campus to the Oceanographic Center.

Oceanographic Center Overview:

As an Oceanographic Center student, you can anticipate remarkable experiences. You will train, study, learn, and interact with students living and working around the world. A leader in marine biological research, with a focus on coral reef science and marine fish conservation, the Nova Southeastern University Oceanographic Center has been at the forefront of marine science education and oceanographic research for nearly 50 years. Situated at Port Everglades in Hollywood, Florida, the 10-acre campus is located on the water within John U. Lloyd Beach State Park. Our large marina affords immediate boat access to coastal and open ocean environments and ecosystems.

An ideal location for students, scientists, and faculty members of oceanography, the Oceanographic Center is also home to
several institutes:

Also located at the campus is the Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Ecosystems Science Research Facility. Students, scientists, and faculty members come to the Oceanographic Center from all corners of the globe, with the common goals of learning from the ocean's living classrooms and protecting its resources.

Group Campus Tours have been temporarily suspended.

Thank you for your interest in bringing your students to Nova Southeastern University!

High School Group Visits can be requested from June through December. January through May is our busiest time of year for our admissions team, therefore no group visits will be hosted in those months.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is pleased to host group visits for 15-40 people. We pride ourselves on our small and engaging campus tours, and intimate campus visit experience – to that end, we will not be able to accommodate any groups that exceed the 40 guest limit. We try to accommodate large groups, but please be aware that our ability to accommodate requests is dependent on the availability of our Admissions Ambassadors, Admissions Representatives, and space on campus.

We ask for at least TEN (10) business days advance notice prior to your campus visit.
