Each March, the University of Guelph is opened to the general public in a campus-wide open house that attracts over 30,000 visitors every year.

For the general public we invite you to come and visit the campus for Open House Weekend. Held during the last weekend of March Break each year, Open House Weekend is a chance to explore the university campus and see what the professors and students are up to. College Royal is a free event for the entire family. Each year we welcome over 30,000 visitors to Open House weekend.
