Campus Visits

The best way to find out if Wisconsin is right for you is to spend some time engaging with us with us by exploring our campus and meeting the people who study, work, and live here. Our tour guides are excited to resume in-person tours for prospective students May 2021 and we would love to have you join us this summer! You can find our current availability online for in-person tours. Please do not make travel arrangements until after you have registered and received your confirmation. Walk-ins are not permitted. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Admissions and Recruitment at for more information.

Campus Visit Program youth and adult visits are suspended until further notice.

We continue to offer the opportunity to visit campus virtually as well, which can be a great supplement to an in-person visit, or an alternative if you are unable to join us this summer. We’re excited to offer live virtual Admission Information Sessions and Campus Tours, as well as other sessions, to learn more about life as a Badger. All available virtual sessions for prospective and admitted students can be found on the Visit Bucky website.
