In-person services have been suspended
In response to the COVID-19, Campus and Visitor Relations is suspending all in person services, including campus tours and visits, and services at our Welcome Desks. We’re making this change in response to the university’s operational changes to protect the health and safety of our guests and employees. For more information, visit UW–Madison’s Smart Restart page.
Ensuring that visitors can experience UW–Madison through alternative means is a top campus priority. The Office of Admissions and Recruitment now offers a virtual tour of campus and other virtual events for prospective and admitted students. In addition, we are actively working with campus partners to provide more virtual visit options. We will share updates on our website as these offerings become available.
Schedule a phone call with a Campus Tour Guide!
Admitted students are invited to submit a request for a 15-minute phone appointment with a UW-Madison tour guide. During the call, the tour guide will share their unique Wisconsin Experience and answer your questions about campus life both inside and outside of the classroom. You may also request your appointment by calling 608-263-2000. Learn more.
