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.

Information Sessions

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.

In advance of your session, you may want to join our contact listtake our virtual tour of the Grounds and explore the residence halls on the housing website.

In-Person Visit


The best way for prospective students to get to know the University of Virginia is by visiting us in Charlottesville. We offer weekly student-led tours for prospective students throughout the academic year. These tours are limited in size and will require registration, which you may find below at the "Student-led Tour Registration" button. 

Please note that our spring semester tours end on May 3, and summer tours begin on May 23. In the interim, you are welcome to take a self-guided tour of Grounds. Beginning May 23, we will offer summer tours Monday - Friday at 10:00am and 2:00pm, and on select Saturdays in June - August. Our summer tours open with a brief welcome from a dean, then move to the student-led tour. Summer tours will conclude on August 16. 

If you would like to bring a group of 10 or more prospective students, please use the "Group Tours for 10+" button to submit a request. A representative from the Office of Admission will follow up to confirm or reschedule your proposed visit, as well as provide details such as parking, where to meet, and more. Group tours for 10 or more prospective students will be available, space permitting, August 23 - December 5.

The University Guide Service welcomes requests for any non-admission specialty tours (Historical, History of African Americans at UVA, History of Women at UVA, Garden Tours, Children's Tours, etc.) throughout the academic year. NOTE: The University Guide Service is unable to offer tours outside the regular academic year, so they will not offer any specialty tours May 4 - August 22. Specialty tours will resume when the fall semester begins, August 23. Please contact the University Guide Service here. The University Guide Service is a student-run organization, and they handle these tours independent of the Office of Admission. 

Please note that all of our tours have a 15 minute grace period. If you arrive more than 15 minutes after your tour start time or plan to visit outside our regularly scheduled tours, we will instead invite you to take a self-guided tour of Grounds.

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 your tour.
