Students Walking From Chapel

visit our campus

At Wayland Baptist University, we have a very clear definition of “family.”   When you visit our main campus in Plainview, you’ll see what we mean.

You will find an environment in which each individual’s talents, interests, and dreams are embraced and cultivated.  You can get a firsthand look at the physical surroundings and facilities in which you will excel.  And you can discover how very special being a part of The Wayland Family can be.

You have several options to consider when planning your visit to Wayland.  Please make your selection from one or all of the following:

Customized Visit including Campus-Tour

It's best to reserve your tour time a few days in advance so we can make your day with us as informative and fulfilling as possible.  Your personalized visit will provide the perfect opportunity to tour the campus, meet current students, speak with professors, meet with financial aid counselors, try our food, and visit residence halls.

For reservations please complete our online registration form or feel free to contact the WBU Admissions team at or 1-800-588-1928.

Wayland’s small classroom, rigorous academics and a faith-based environment provide students with the skills needed to succeed.  Each preview day is filled with campus tours, visits with faculty and information sessions on Admissions, Financial Aid and Housing.  Come see first-hand what Wayland has to offer.
