In-Person Visit


The best way for prospective students to get to know the University of Virginia is by visiting us in Charlottesville. Prospective students can visit Grounds by registering for a Dean Welcome & Tour.

For planning purposes, this visit will last approximately two hours. Plan to arrive 15-20 minutes in advance to pay for parking and check in. The session will open with a brief welcome from a dean of admission, followed by a student-led tour of Grounds that will last approximately 60-90 minutes. Note that these tours are limited in size and require registration.

Tours are offered during the academic year. Tours for Fall 2022 will conclude on December 5th. Spring 2023 tours will begin on January 18th and be offered until May 2nd. Register for a Spring 2023 tour using the button below. In the interim, we invite you to take a self-guided tour of Grounds.
