Virtual Information Sessions
The best way for prospective high school students to get to know the University of Virginia is to attend an information session and tour. While we can’t host information sessions on Grounds at the moment, we offer a few ways for you to explore UVA from a distance.
Questions? Register to attend one of our upcoming information sessions. Learn about the university and the admissions process. Choose a day of the week to register for a virtual information session.
These live virtual events will include an overview of our admission process, a short virtual tour given by one of our current students, and an interactive question and answer session with current students. We hope to provide you with a better understanding of the application process, give you tips on completing your application, and introduce you to the unique experiences UVA students enjoy most.
The best way for prospective students to get to know the University of Virginia is by visiting us in Charlottesville and take a student-led tour of the historic University Grounds. The tours are limited in size and will require registration. We also offer self-guided and virtual tours for those who are unable to register.
You can find information on the most up-to-date Visitor Information here. This site includes current information on masking and vaccination requirements at UVA, directions, parking, emergency notifications, and more. Please visit this site within 24 hours of arrival on Grounds for you tour.
The University of Virginia will be closed from Thursday, December 23, 2021 to Sunday January 2, 2022. We will reopen on Monday, January 3, 2022. During this time, you may still visit Grounds for a self-guided tour. Please take advantage of the self-guided tour potion with audio stops and enjoy your time on Grounds. Student-led tours will resume at the start of the Spring 2022 semester, on Wednesday, January 19.
