Visiting the University of Mary

When you visit the University of Mary, you will notice some extraordinary things. The way our world-class professors mentor students, how we come together as a community to serve others, or how everyone on campus seems to know each other are areas that make us stand apart from the crowd and make your time on campus memorable.

See what it’s like to be part of the Mary community by visiting our beautiful campus — nestled in the hills overlooking the Missouri River — in Bismarck, North Dakota.

At Mary, you can customize your visit to your interests:

  • Tour campus and really get a feel for our unique community.
  • Meet professors in your field. Talk to students. Sit in on a class.
  • Have lunch on us!

Visiting campus really is the best way to understand what sets Mary apart.

To help make your visit to campus easier, the University of Mary has negotiated special rates at hotels in town for when traditional undergraduate students make a formal campus visit.

If you would like to book a room, just mark that you need information about hotels in Bismarck when filling out your campus visit request online and we will send you information about the hotels with which we have special rates.
