Come Visit Us

“Community” is Mary’s middle name.

When you visit the University of Mary, you’ll notice some extraordinary things: Like how our world-class professors mentor students. Or how we come together to serve others. Or how everyone on campus seems to know each other.

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

Complimentary Accommodations

  • To help make your visit to campus easier, the University of Mary can offer a complimentary hotel room when traditional undergraduate students make a formal campus visit. The only limitations are that:
      • We can only pay for one room, one night, once per student; and
      • You must live more than 200 miles from campus to be eligible. So keep in mind that if you are planning to make multiple campus visits to Mary, we will only be able to offer a free room for one of those trips.
      • You must be considering full-time enrollment on the main campus in Bismarck as a first-time freshman or a traditional transfer student.
  • If you would like us to book a room for you, just mark that you need overnight accommodations when filling out your campus visit request online and we will book the room and send you the confirmation information. Please note that if you book your own accommodations, we cannot reimburse you.
