University of Wisconsin–Madison

Customized Tours

If you are bringing a group to UW–Madison, such as conference participants, an alumni group, prospective or new students, a foreign delegation or a civic group, a Campus Visit Program representative can help. View a list of customized tour options.

As the birthplace of the Wisconsin Idea, UW–Madison believes that the boundaries of the university are the boundaries of the state, and that all Wisconsin citizens should benefit from the campus.

Rates & Request Information

Campus walking and bus tours are always free to school and non-profit groups, but some campus visit options require a nominal fee per visitor. Please contact the Campus Visit Program at 608-265-9500 for additional rate information.

In an effort to provide a quality experience, we require that visit requests are made at least three weeks in advance of your desired date. Please note that many venues and activities fill quickly during peak visit months (April, May, June, and October). If you are planning a visit that will take place during one of these months, we highly encourage you to contact us at least three months in advance of your desired date.

Due to holidays, university breaks, and high-volume prospective student visit days, there may be dates on which we are unable to accommodate requests for customized group visits/field trips.
