Visit McCormick

We encourage you to visit our campus and learn about the McCormick School of Engineering first hand. McCormick is located on Northwestern University’s campus in Evanston, Illinois, in a complex of buildings connected to the Technological Institute (or “Tech”) building.

McCormick Information Session

Most business days at 3:45 p.m., there is an information session for prospective McCormick students. This provides a great opportunity for you to sit down with a member of the McCormick staff and ask questions about life as an engineering student at Northwestern. Check the Admissions calendar (at this link) to see if your date is available and to sign-up.

Interested prospective students and their families should gather at the Office of Undergraduate Engineering, located in room L268, on the second floor of the Technological Institute at 2145 Sheridan Road, Evanston, Illinois, 60208. From there you will be directed to the location for that day's meeting.

The main entrance to “Tech” is located near the corner of Noyes Street and Sheridan Road in Evanston.

  • Reservations are made through the Admissions Site.
  • Due to major events, we are unable to host our session on the Friday of University Commencement and other peak periods.
  • We do not provide information sessions on Saturdays or Sundays.

Visiting Northwestern

The McCormick information session fits in well with prospective student activities arranged through Northwestern’s Office of Undergraduate Admission.

We encourage you to start your campus visit at Northwestern’s undergraduate admission office, located at 1801 Hinman Avenue.
